|Abstract:||Nature has continuously amaze material scientists with her ability to create intelligent living things using techniques of self-assembly. Nature provides many examples of complex, highly organised self-assembled structures. For instance, bird homing ability of migratory birds (including homing pigeons, domestic chickens) also guided by magnetic nanoparticle (NP) assemblies found in the upper beak skin of this birds. Also assembled magnetic nanoparticles found in the nasal capsule of sea salmon is sensitive to the geomagnetic field and help in guiding their journeys in the endless ocean. Inspired from this natural instance, material scientists (including nanomaterial scientists) have also tried to developed several assembly processes to create artificial smart materials.[2,3,4,5] Nanoparticle assemblies exhibit physical and chemical properties, which are different from those of both individual nanoparticles and their bulk aggregates.|
