Covalent-like Interactions between Artificial Atoms inside Silver Supercrystals
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, two kinds of surfactants with relative long or short alkyl chains are introduced onto the surface of the Ag nanocrystals, which contribute to the formation of tunable and anisotropic "covalent bonds" between two Ag nanocrystals. By altering the lengths of the short alkyl chains, the sizes and structures of the as-obtained supercrystals as well as the exposed crystal planes of the interior nanocrystals can be tuned.
