Abstract:
Branched nanostructures with tunable arm numbers were prepared through the assembly of silica rods mediated by coalescence of catalyst droplets on the end of the rods. The formed primary branched colloids retain living characteristics similar to the original ones, that is, they can further assemble into multilevel and hierarchical branched structures.
