One-dimensional assemblies of charged nanoparticles in water: A simulation study.


While the template-free one-dimensional assembly of nanoparticles, e.g., in chains, has been widely observed experimentally, the formation mechanism is still not well known. Therefore, the homogeneous nucleation in a model system of charged nanoparticles in water is investigated using Brownian dynamics simulations. The interaction between the particles is… (More)
