Simulation studies of monodisperse self-assembly

Abstract:

The processes by which anisotropic colloidal and nanoscale particles may come together to form ordered monodisperse structures are not well understood. The canonical example of such a system is provided by the assembly of virus capsids, in which tens to thousands of particles of one or a few types assemble efficiently into ordered, highly symmetrical shells. Other examples include a wide variety of protein oligomers, and there is interest in producing analogous systems of synthetic particl...
