The synthesis of platinum nanoparticles organized inside rod or wire shaped superstructures is described. Such organization results from the combination of an organometallic route leading to size-controlled nanoparticles with the use of a fluorinated aniline able to self-assemble as a stabilizing agent. Several techniques were employed to characterize the nanomaterials obtained including TEM, HRTEM, WAXS, SEM-FEG and SAXS which confirmed the nanoparticle organization. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2008.
