Cooperative Assembly of Asymmetric Carbonaceous Bivalve-Like Superstructures from Multiple Building Blocks

Figure 5

Schematic illustration of ACBSs formation process. Step 1, a large number of solid particles and F127/H2SO4/xylose composite micelles form within a short time. Step 2, cooperative assembly of particles and OPPs from micelles gives rise to small bilaminar plates. Step 3, sustained growth results in ACBSs.
