  • We present a molecular dynamics study on the self-assembly of anisotropic nanoparticles—triangles and tetrahedrons on a flat surface. We observe ordered and disordered aggregates of nanoparticles depending on the particle–particle and surface–particle interactions. Anisotropic particles induce directionality in the assembly process. In particular, a cross over from the isotropic (spherical) assembly to the anisotropic (non-spherical) assembly of nanoparticles is identified as their size… CONTINUE READING
