Abstract

Here we report a nanoparticulate route to Y2O3 nanofibers (~50 nm in diameter and a few micrometers in length) and for the radial growth of ZnS spheres (200-800 nm diameter). Well-defined higher order structures are developed upon thermostatically aging the dispersions of monomeric nanocrystals. The shapes of the “macromolecules„ are correlated to primary monomeric nanocrystallites, the growing time and temperature, and surfactant templating agents. It is anticipated that this approach should inspire fabrication of nanoparticulate structures by using primary nanoparticles as monomers.
