Self-Assembly

Abstract:
Getting Molecules to Put Themselves Together to Make Nanoscale Devices

... chemists are trying to tackle the harder problem of making what are known as supramolecular nanostructures—huge assemblies of molecules that make up nanoparticles and other nanoscale devices for use in detecting and treating cancer. “When we talk about supramolecular chemistry, about making nanoparticles for use in diagnostic and therapeutic applications, then we’re really talking about taking advantage of the weaker, non-covalent interactions that nature uses to put together large assemblies of molecules,” said Jinming Gao, Ph.D., who recently moved his research team to the Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. Gao also has a joint appointment at the University of Texas at Dallas.
