Multiple types of metal oxide nanoparticles can be coupled via azide-alkyne cycloaddition reactions, thereby forming well-defined and customizable junctions between the particles, according to a study published in (ACS Nano DOI: 10.1021/nn203585r). The work may lead to strategies for synthesizing novel materials with properties tailored for applications in catalysis and photovoltaics.
