Planting the seeds for nanoparticle growth

Abstract:
Metal sulphide building blocks can be used to create functional heterostructured nanoparticles say scientists from Japan.

Toshiharu Teranishi and co-workers from the University of Tsukuba, Ibaraki, have developed a seed-mediated growth strategy to make flower- and dumbbell-shaped heterostructured nanoparticles. The group demonstrated that the resulting heterostructured nanoparticles consisted of metal sulphide building blocks.

The aim of the research was to find both ‘new heterostructured nanoparticles with interesting morphologies and to create the structure-specific novel functions of heterostructured nanoparticles.' This work could provide a new mechanistic insight into the processes underlying formation of these nanoparticles says Teranishi.
