Colloidal nanochemistry offers the possibility of synthesising nanostructured materials that exhibit novel and/or collective properties, and have capabilities that can be exploited in multiple applications. As such, the understanding of the formation of complex all-nanocrystal-made structures from their building blocks is essential for the design of hierarchically structured materials.
This CrystEngComm themed issue will focus on novel approaches and strategies for the assembly and the hetero-structuring of colloidal nanocrystals, with a special emphasis on the underlying formation mechanisms.
How to submit?
All types of manuscript—communications, full papers and Highlights, will be considered for publication. The manuscript should be prepared according to our article guidelines and submitted via our online system.
All manuscripts will be subject to the normal refereeing procedure and inclusion in the themed issue will be at the discretion of the Guest Editors. Please indicate in your submission that you would like the manuscript to be considered for this themed issue.
The deadline for submissions is 31st March 2014.
