Monodisperse inorganic supraparticles: formation mechanism, properties and applications
Monodisperse inorganic supraparticles (SPs) are an emerging and hot research topic in the chemistry, physics and materials science communities in the past several years. Monodisperse inorganic SPs exhibit unique physiochemical properties due to their well-defined shape and distinctive topological structure. This review summarizes recent progress in the study of formation mechanism, properties and applications of inorganic monodisperse SPs. The future developments in this research area are also discussed.
