McBain award meeting: Dynamic and controlled self-assembly at interfaces 19th December 2013, Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge.
Elaborate supramolecular architectures can be crafted and tuned through non-covalent interactions, ranging from simple host-guest interactions to more complex types of molecular recognition. Recent advances in the field have made these systems adaptative, customisable, responsive to one or multiple stimuli and relevant to a wide range of applications, requiring also cutting-edge techniques to probe the morphologies on the nano-scale. This one-day symposium showcased some of the latest work in this rapidly growing field. The McBain Medal is an early-career award offered by the RSC/SCI Joint Colloids Group.
The 2013 McBain Lecture will be given by Dr Oren Scherman of the Dept of Chemistry in the University of Cambridge in recognition of his work on smart polymers, disperse systems and interfaces. Dr Oren’s web pages can be found at http://www.ch.cam.ac.uk/staff/oas.html.
