Abstract: This chapter deals with the synthetic architecture of inorganic nanomaterials. Synthesis and fabrication of nanomaterials have attracted great attention in materials research community over the past decade. Among many known techniques chemical synthesis under mild reaction conditions has proven to be an effective approach for this new class of materials. In particular, the synthetic processes can be carried out in solution phase under similar conditions that have been known by chemists for centuries through which numerous new solid compounds were discovered during the evolution of contemporary inorganic or organic chemistry. This chapter reviews recent development of design and synthesis of inorganic nanomaterials under the mild reaction conditions in solution media. Although the materials' functionality is always the first concern for applications, it is now realized that a certain degree of aesthetic expression for the synthesized nanomaterials should also be targeted. Therefore, on the basis of the existing synthetic knowledge, the main objective of this review is to devise a set of general concepts of synthetic architecture for constructions of inorganic nanomaterials, in a controlled manner.. © 2006 Elsevier Ltd All rights reserved.
