How to design an icosahedral quasicrystal through directional bonding

Nature, Published online: 18 August 2021; doi:10.1038/s41586-021-03700-2

Model patchy colloids with directional bonding are designed that assemble into icosahedral quasicrystals through the propagation of an icosahedral network of bonds and may be realized using DNA origami particles.
