The synthesis of inorganic nanocrystals with control over shape and size is attractive for both fundamental studies of electrical transport,  optical phenomena  and magnetic properties,  as well as many emerging applications. Several key strategies have been developed to synthesize and assemble one-dimensional nanocrystals, e.g., vapor-liquid-solid, physical chemical[6,7], and biological routes, which allow crystal shape control by selective adsorption of surfactants onto specific crystallographic facets. Furthermore, hierarchical one-, two-[10,11] and three-dimensional[12,13] architectures can be achieved by assembling these building blocks in organized formations by controlling interparticle interactions using a suitable capping agent or solvent medium. However, to the best of our knowledge, there have been no reports on the formation nanoscopic ensembles of defined shapes comprised of multiple inorganic phases assembled via the dynamic interaction between the phases.
