Nanostructured Colloidal Systems Inspired by Nature

Abstract:
University of Melbourne researchers' work on bioinspired nanoscale colloidal systems is an example of the significant interest that the design and fabrication of nanostructured colloidal materials has created among scientists. Professor Frank Caruso, who is Director of the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and leads the Nanostructured Interfaces & Materials Group (NIMS) in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, and his group have pioneered the modification of colloidal particles with ultrathin polymer coatings.
