Polymer directed-assembly and infiltration of architectured nanocrystals for energy devices

We will describe the design principles by which naked nanocrystals (i.e. Those stripped of their native ligands) can be architectured into diverse 3-D mesoscale materials using block copolymers. Various polymer-architecturing paradigms will be discussed from a theor. perspective alongside exptl. results. Particular mention will be nanocrystal tethering domains that afford substantive enthalpic contribution to the free energy of co-assembly used to direct the nanocrystals into precision architectures at high vol. fractions. We will also show how those various architectures are useful in high-power energy storage applications.
