Oxide nanocubes have received great research attention because of their unique chemical, optical, magnetic, and electrontransport
properties, which are caused by the strong face-to-face interactions among the nanocubes. One of the main challenges in this
field is how to realize larg-scale assembly oxide nanocubes in large scale. This review summarizes the recent progress in the organic solution-
based routes for fabrication and self-assembly of oxide nanocubes, as well as related physical and chemical properties. Solvent and
surfactants those may determine the growth and self-assembly behavior of the nanocubes are emphasized in this paper. This review aims
to present a relatively general understanding of the correlation between the surface interactions and self-assembly behaviors of nanomaterials
under organic solution based conditions and potential applications of self-assembled oxide nanocubes.
Keywords: Metal oxide, Nanocubes, Self-assembly.
