Abstract

original image

3D hybrid colloidal spheres with integrated functions and collective properties are fabricated using a variety of common inorganic nano-objects as building blocks in association with polyelectrolyte encapsulation through a facile template strategy. The fabrication strategy is generally suited for design of functional colloidal spheres in a simple and controllable manner, and thus opens a new avenue for developing hybrid materials with multiple functions and collective properties.
