Abstract

The nanoengineering of particles is of interest for both fundamental and applied science. How particles are made substantially affects their properties and quality, and therefore usefulness. Disseminating current understanding of particle engineering can help facilitate the use of existing technologies, as well as guide future developments. Herein, we describe three methods used in our laboratory for the nanoengineering of particles, based on template assembly, and discuss important considerations for each. First, we describe the use of layer-by-layer assembly for depositing multilayered nanofilms on particle surfaces to generate core−shell particles and hollow capsules. Second, we detail th..
