Three-Dimensional Fabrication by Reaction-Diffusion: “Remote” Fabrication via Three-Dimensional Reaction-Diffusion: Making Complex Core-and-Shell Particles and Assembling Them into Open-Lattice Crystals (Adv. Mater. 19/2009)
Reaction-diffusion processes initiated from the surfaces of small gel or polymer particles can fabricate complex three-dimensional structures inside these particles. Bartosz Grzybowski and co-workers show on page 1911 that the core/shell particles thus prepared can be further modified “remotely” by electrochemical exchange reactions. The image shows four cubical particles, each having a spherical core fabricated by reaction-diffusion and comprising copper nanoparticles.
