3D ordered gold strings by coating nanoparticles with mesogens

Zeng, Xiangbing, Liu, Feng, Fowler, Alan G., Ungar, Goren, Cseh, Liliana, Mehl, Georg H. and Macdonald, John Emyr 2009. 3D ordered gold strings by coating nanoparticles with mesogens. Advanced Materials 21 (17) , pp. 1746-1750. 10.1002/adma.200803403

Gold nanoparticles covered with a nematic liquid-crystal ligand laterally attached via a thioalkyl spacer and a thioalkane “diluent” exhibit 3D ordering in strings jacketed by the mesogens with controllable interparticle spacing. The particles form rhombohedral, hexagonal, and rectangular columnar superlattices, not the usual packing modes of spheres.
