Dispersion of Hydrophobic Co Supracrystal in Aqueous Solution.

Assembly of nanoparticles into supracrystals provides a class of materials with interesting optical and magnetic properties. However, supracrystals are mostly obtained from hydrophobic particles and therefore cannot be manipulated in aqueous systems, limiting their range of applications. Here, we show that hydrophobic-shaped supracrystals self-assembled… CONTINUE READING
