Engineering the Structual Properties of Self-assembled Polymer/Nanoparticle Capsules
A materials synthesis technique was recently developed to generate polymer/nanoparticles composite microcapsules in which synthetic polyamines such as polyallylamine and/or polylysine were crosslinked with multivalent ...
Paramagnetic particle assemblies as colloidal models for atomic and molecular systems
Colloidal particles are ideal models for studying the behavior of atomic and molecular systems. They resemble their atomic and molecular analogues in that their dynamics are driven by thermal energy and their equilibrium ...
Investigating the use of directed magnetic assembly to create tunable colloidal fractal aggregates and DNA-linked bead-spring chains
The purpose of this work is to develop techniques for building complex colloidal assemblies using an applied magnetic field. The greatest challenge in this field is creating sophisticated, dynamic structures from relatively ...
