The research described in this thesis focuses on synthesis and phase behavior of anisotropic colloids prepared through different synthetic strategies. Namely, eccentric core-shell particles, dimers, string-like particles and core-shell particles are the systems investigated throughout this work. The synthesis routes are described for these colloidal systems and their physical/chemical properties are extensively characterized. Furthermore, potential applications of these colloidal systems in fields such as size-selective catalysis, colloidal crystallization, optical tweezing are investigated
