Self-assembly of gold nanocubes into three-dimensional hollow colloidosomes and two-dimensional superlattices

Author affiliations

Abstract

Self-assembly of metal nanocubes (NCs) into periodic structures has applications in the fabrication of functional materials. Here, we propose a facile yet robust strategy for the fabrication of three-dimensional (3D) hollow colloidosomes and two-dimensional (2D) superlattices with highly ordered face-to-face configuration of gold NCs (AuNCs) via the hierarchical assembly of polymer-tethered AuNCs at the emulsion interface, providing a universal route for the preparation of hierarchical NC superstructures with applications in various fields.
