Abstract

We demonstrate a temperature directed morphology transformation (TDMT) process to convert spherical nanoparticles to a variety of various 3D structures, including (i.e. worms, vesicles and lamella sheets). By regulating the amount of SDS, we transformed spheres to 3D structures, which was fully reversible.
