Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This manuscript reports a shape-controlled synthesis of colloidal superparticles from iron-oxide nanocubes. Our results show that the formation of superparticles is under thermodynamic control and their shape is determined by Gibbs free energy minimization. The resulting superparticles adopted a simple cubic superlattice structure, and their shape can be tuned between spheres and cubes by varying the relative free energy contributions from the surface and bulk free energy terms. The formation of sphere-shaped superparticles from nanocubes suggests that the size-dependent hydration effect predicted by the Lum-Chandler-Weeks theory plays a very important role in the self-assembly of nano-objects. In addition, the iron-oxide superparticles exhibit shape-dependent therapeutic effects in magnetomechanical treatments of cancer cells in vitro.
