We demonstrate that gold nanoparticles (GNPs) can spontaneously self-assemble to form hollow structures in the presence of sugar-terminated fluorinated-oligo(ethylene glycol) ligands. The size of the fabricated gold nanoparticle vesicles (GNVs) was dependent on the solvent properties, the number of glucose units at the terminal of the surface ligands, and the initial GNP concentration. Time-dependent studies showed that quick aggregation and subsequent slow fusion were involved in the GNV formation in solution.
