Multicomponent DNA-templated nanoparticle chains with controllable dimension and composition are fabricated by joining nanoparticle (NP)-coated DNA fragments with asymmetric sticky overhangs in a specific pattern. Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy is used to investigate the proton relaxation properties for two- segmented multicomponent structures. The position, composition, and the pattern of the NP chains has an influence on proton relaxation.
