Chapter 10

Self-Assembling Nanostructures*

Abstract

Fundamentals of nanoparticle self-assembly lead to a better understanding of how nanomaterials organize and assemble themselves, how they are constructed, and how they operate in complex nanostructured systems. The theory behind the main approach that organize and assemble nanoscale particles or molecules is the self-assembly of nanostructured molecular materials and devices. Self-assembly allows predefined components to organize into ordered superstructures. Self-assembly is classified into static and dynamic self-assembly. The ability to formulate and control self-assembly makes many scientists consider it to be the most promising and simple method of incorporating nanoparticles into functional ...
