ii) The formation of heterostructured nanoparticles is a combination of two well-known phenomena, heteroepitaxy and heterogeneous nucleation. However, on the surface of nanometer-sized seed nanoparticles, they show unexpected interactions with each other affecting lattice strain, nucleation kinetics, and morphology of the nanoparticles.
iii) Mechanism study on the formation of doped nanoparticles reveals that doping in nanometer scale can be substantially different from the bulk counterpart. In conclusion, study of nanochemistry will not only contribute to extend our knowledge to cover the forbidden area in between molecular chemistry and solid state science, but also form the basis of design principles for the systematic synthesis of complex nanostructures with improved performance.
