Abstract

We report organically functionalized Ag nanoparticles spontaneously form two-dimensional (2D) novel superstructures at the air-water interface. Analysis of the superstructures suggests that the 2D assembly of Ag nanoparticles originates from a subtle interplay between characteristic inter-particle interactions that can be readily controlled by changing the sizes of nanoparticle metal core and surfactants. Such structures have potential uses in nanostructured functional materials, catalysis, and device applications.
