Event Name

Nanoparticle Assembly: From Fundamentals to Applications. Faraday Discussion

Start Date 7th Jan 2016
End Date 9th Jan 2016
Description

Aims

Complementing the Faraday Discussions meeting on Nanoparticle Synthesis and Assembly (Chicago, USA, April 2015) which will focus on ordered superlattice arrays of ligand-passivated inorganic clusters, with applications related to size scalability and processing, this meeting will emphasise the importance of considering both ordered and disordered assemblies, and the translation of fundamental science to applications. The scope of the Discussion will include chemically distinct classes of nanoparticle assemblies - polymer nanocomposites, patchy colloids, ligand-passivated inorganic nanocrystals - and link them with soft matter systems, with a view to understanding some of the basic principles of nanoparticle assembly and how they affect practical applications. The topic is particularly appropriate for the Faraday Discussions format with the possibility of documenting an interesting cross-fertilization of ideas.
