Abstract: Directing the self-assembly of sub-10-nm nanoparticles has been challenging because of the simultaneous requirements to achieve a densely packed monolayer and rearrange nanoparticles to assemble within a template. We met both requirements by separating the processes into two steps by first forming a monolayer of gold nanoparticles on a suitable liquid subphase of anisole and then transferring it edgewise onto a silicon substrate with a prepatterned template comprising nanoposts and nanogratings. Doing so resulted in nanoparticles that assembled in commensuration with the template design while exhibiting appreciable template-induced strain. These dense arrays of nanostructures could either be directly applied or used as lithographic masks in applications for light collection, chemical sensing, and data storage. © 2012 American Chemical Society.
