Discrete Supracrystaline Heteroststrucures from Integral Assembly of Nanocrystals and Porous Organic Cages


Abstract image

Although self-control has been well recognized and intensively studied in the natural biological system over multiple length scales, the design of artificial heterogeneous structures involved through integrative self-construction is still at an early stage. Here is a strategy for increasing the number of inorganic nanocrystals and porous organic crystalline superstructure heterostructures from porous organic cages.CC3-R.), Which in principle relies on the interaction of host-guests in alkyl chains covered in nanocrystals and in the cavity of cage molecules. The calculation of the functional theory of density indicates that 2 attractive energies K.BT is represented by an alkyl chain and a in the cavity CC3-R. The molecule responsible for the assembly of nanocrystalline superlattices CC3-R. Octatrium crystals. Of particular interest is the fact that, depending on the shape of the nanocrystals, it is possible to have two distinct assembly modes at the neighbor level that ultimately form the nucleus / membrane or heterodimer supra crystal structure. Our results highlight the potential for such non-coherent integrative self-development that is not limited to a particular length, and this can generally be used for flexible integration of supramolecular systems.
