Nanoparticles: New Opportunities and Challenges for Colloid Scientists

University of Warwick , Coventry , United Kingdom
28 March 2007 - 30 March 2007


Chemists are now able to produce nanoparticles, of well defined size and shape, at high yield. This offers the opportunity to both study the phase behaviour of suspensions containing high-volume fractions of nanoparticles and undertake systematic studies of the assembly of nanoparticles to produce novel materials.

Colloid scientists continue to introduce new experimental methods to investigate suspensions of micron sized particles and develop underpinning theory.
