Abstract

Herein, we report a strategy to fabricate a three-dimensional amorphous arrangement of gold nanoparticles from eccentric goldpolymer hybrid particles. The arrangement of the gold nanoparticles in the three-dimensional colloidal lattice of the hybrid particles was amorphous because of the disordered orientation of the gold nanoparticles in each polymer bead. The amorphous arrangement was different from ordinary random structures, since it had a particular short-range order. Such an amorphous arrangement should have the potential for use in a new class of functional materials.
