Abstract

Colloids with high-symmetry patches are functionalized with metal-coordination-based recognition units and assembled into larger chain architectures, demonstrating for the first time the use of metal coordination as a specific force in colloidal self-assembly. The cross-linked poly(styrene)-based patchy particles are fabricated by encapsulation of colloidal clusters following a two-stage swelling and polymerization methodology. The particle patches, containing carboxylic acid groups, are site-specifically functionalized either with a triblock copolymer (TBC), bearing primary alcohols, alkyl chains, and palladated pincer receptors, synthesized by ring-opening metathesis polymerization, or with a small molecule bearing a pyridine headgroup. Functionalizing with a TBC provides design flexibility for independently setting the range of the interaction and the recognition motif.
