Design Rules Build on Self-Assembly

Abstract:
Researchers at the University of Michigan have developed computer simulations that show that adding sticky patches of molecules that connect to each other on a nanoparticle surface makes for building blocks that will self-assemble into a wide range of nanostructures, including chains, sheets, rings, shells, pyramids and staircases, depending on the position of the sticky patches.
