Thermodynamics of Dissipative Self-Assembly Ger Koper (TU Delft, The Netherlands) 7 July 2014 UCLan, 11:00, LE003 Self-assembled structures such as micelles and vesicles have frequently been discussed as model systems for biological cells because they can mimic their ability to compartmentalize matter for biological and material processing such as DNA-replication and nanoparticle synthesis respectively. However,… Read More ›
