Abstract

Despite remarkable facileness and potential in forming a wide variety of heterostructured nanoparticles with extraordinary compositional and structural complexity, one-pot synthesis of multicomponent heterostructures is largely limited by the lack of fundamental mechanistic understanding, designing principles, and well-established, generally applicable chemical methods. Herein, we developed a one-pot heterointerfacial metamorphosis (1HIM) method that allows heterointerfaces inside a particle to undergo multiple equilibrium stages to form a variety of highly crystalline heterostructured nanoparticles at a relatively low temperature (<100 °C). As proof-of-concept experiments, it was shown that widely different single-crystalline semiconductor-metal anisotropic nanoparticles with synergistic chemical, spectroscopic, and band-gap-engineering properties, including a series of metal-semiconductor nanoframes with high structural and compositional tunability, can be formed by using the 1HIM approach. 1HIM offers a new paradigm to synthesize previously unobtainable or poorly controllable heterostructures with unique or synergistic properties and functions.
