Abstract:Self-assembly of Au and Ag|ZnO nanowires, synthesized by templated electrodeposition, was studied by making use of thiol-functionalized silica nanoparticles with a maghemite core (SiMAG) or by using thiol-modified complimentary DNA oligomers. Self-assembly samples were studied by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS). SEM and DLS both indicated the possibility of successful self-assembly when using SiMAG nanoparticles to induce self-assembly. The effect of time and of nanowire and SiMAG nanoparticle concentration was examined as well.
