Size-Dependent LCST Transitions of Polymer-Coated Gold Nanoparticles: Cooperative Aggregation and Surface Assembly

Nanoparticles working together. Thermoresponsive polymer-coated nanoparticles are shown to display size dependent, cooperative, lower critical solution temperature behavior. This is exploited to direct the assembly of appropriate nanoparticles onto complementary polymer brush coated surfaces.
