Functional properties of solid, inorganic materials are first and foremost determined by their composition and crystal structure. Other parameters such as morphology (size and shape) are of immense relevance as well. One can observe that the complexity of functional inorganic materials is increasing substantially. Therefore, rather than preparation, the synthesis of tailor-made materials is highly desirable. This approach requires an understanding of mechanistic aspects that can be used in a rational synthesis of the materials with required properties. It is demonstrated in the domain of bioinorganic materials that superior functionality can be achieved by controlled assembly of (biological) building blocks in a hierarchical manner. In analogy, in the current context, synthesis refers to the simultaneous control over the assembly of a variety of inorganic tectons on different length scales. A basic requirement is that desirable structural motifs that have been constructed in previous steps remain intact in the course of the entire synthesis. The synthetic concept that is discussed here addresses the hierarchy of activation energies and length scales. Molecular precursors are interpreted as initial tectons that are transferred into nanoscaled seeds for the formation of a desired, complex material. The tools of molecular inorganic chemistry can be applied to ensure that the latter transformation occurs at such conditions that the information about composition and structure is retained. Then, the seeds represent tectons for higher organization on the supramolecular scale. This requires the ability for fine control of surface energies and curvatures through noncovalent interactions. Thus, the concept developed in this work provides a bridge among solid-state chemistry, inorganic molecular chemistry, surface chemistry, and colloid chemistry. Because of the bridging character and the underlying hierarchy ranging from the pm scale to the mesoscale, the term ‘chemical architectonics’ has been selected for the description of the main topic of the current work. Thus, chemical architectonics can be understood as the coordinated use of different tools of chemical synthesis for the assembly of nanostructured materials fulfilling function.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Dilger, Stefan</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Dilger, Stefan</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2017-07-04T09:13:07Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Polarz, Sebastian</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Chemical architectonics for complex inorganic materials</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Polarz, Sebastian</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2017-07-04T09:13:07Z</dcterms:available> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
