Superlattice Engineering with Chemically Precise Molecular Building Blocks.

Xiao-Yun Yan, Qing-Yun Guo, Xian-You Liu, Yicong Wang, Jing Wang, Zebin Su, Jiahao Huang, Fenggang Bian, Haixin Lin, Mingjun Huang, Zhiwei Lin, Tong Liu, Yuchu Liu, Stephen Z D Cheng,

Correlating nanoscale building blocks with mesoscale superlattices, mimicking metal alloys, a rational engineering strategy becomes critical to generate designed periodicity with emergent properties. For molecule-based superlattices, nevertheless, nonrigid molecular features and multistep self-assembly make the molecule-to-superlattice correlation less straightforward. In addition, single component systems possess intrinsically limited volume asymmetry of ... Read more >>
