Try to make it ordered! Micrometer-sized PbS–organic mesocrystals show a long-range order of nanoparticles within an fcc superlattice combined with preferred orientational ordering of truncated octahedrally shaped PbS cores (see picture). The concept of formation and structuring of mesocrystalline materials is perfectly illustrated this system.
