A reversible locking mechanism is established for the generation of anisotropic nanostructures by a magnetic field pulse in liquid matrices by balancing the thermal energy, short-range attractive and long-range repulsive forces, and dipole–dipole interactions using a specially tailored polymer shell of nanoparticles. The locking mechanism is used to precisely regulate the dimensions of self-assembled magnetic nanoparticle chains and to generate and disintegrate three-dimensional (3D) nanostructured materials in solvents and polymers
