Self-limiting self-assembly of supraparticles for potential biological applications

Author affiliations

Abstract

Nanotechnology has largely spurred the development of biological systems by taking advantage of the unique chemical, physical, optical, magnetic, and electrical properties of nanostructures. Self-limiting self-assembly of supraparticles produce new nanostructures and display great potential to create biomimicking nanostructures with desired functionalities. In this minireview, we summarize the recent developments and outstanding achievements of colloidal supraparticles, such as the driving forces for self-limiting self-assembly of supraparticles and properties of constructed supraparticles. Their application values in biological systems have also been illustrated.
