Chalcogenide nanocrystals, synthesized in solution, can shape bigger nanostructures through the association of the nanocrystals. There are an assortment of structures that shape which range from basic chains to more unpredictable tripod, tetrapod furthermore, star morphologies. The association of the nanocrystals has been hypothesized to be the result of dipole-dipole associations between nanocrystals. An expansive range of size proportions are analyzed, mirroring the size distribution of nanocrystals present in synthesis. There are various basic models that can portray the development of basic chain or ring nanostructures. A huge stride forward in the comprehension of nanoparticle self-assembly is to model the development of the more intricate tetrapod structures. In this setting an altered Stockmayer fluid model is created in which a single nanocrystal is represented by four off kilter Stockmayer fluid particles.
