Growing in line: The surface chemistry of self-assembled nanostructured block copolymers is used to control the sites at which semiconducting metal sulfide nanocrystals nucleate and grow on a surface directly from aqueous solutions. This process is a new and general strategy for the bottom-up assembly of functional nanocrystalline materials for a variety of applications.
