By introducing a small number of clusters in sedimention, it should be possible to slow down the crystallization process, thus making the assembly order tunable in preparative ultracentrifugation experiments. Here, we used sodium dodecyl sulfate-stabilized polystyrene nanoparticles (with a size dispersity of 1.07) dispersed in a solution of high ionic strength. Sedimentation and assembly of these nanoparticles were done using preparative ultracentrifugation at various angular velocities. The sedimentation process was also analyzed in situ by analytical ultracentrifugation in real time. By creating as low as 3% of clusters into these nearly uniformly sized polystyrene nanoparticle dispersions during the sedimentation process, the superstructure order becomes easily tunable between glassy and crystalline. Theoretical calculations complemented the experiments to explain the mechanism of cluster formation in sedimentation. This work provides a novel methodology to produce superstructures with a tunable packing order for colloids at low Péclet number.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Cölfen, Helmut</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/29"/> <dc:creator>Xu, Xufeng</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/54023"/> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Wu, Baohu</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0/"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-06-18T09:10:13Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>With, Gijsbertus de</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>With, Gijsbertus de</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Cölfen, Helmut</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-06-18T09:10:13Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
