We strive to design syntheses of a series of amphiphilic molecular building blocks that can self-assembled at the air-water interface to form 2D and 3D nanostructures with specific opto-electronic properties. Compression of these molecular building [...]
Technologically important nanomaterials come in all shapes and sizes. They can range from small molecules to complex composites and mixtures. Depending upon the spatial dimensions of the system and properties under investigation, computer modeling of [...]
Antimicrobial fabrics find many technical applications in medical, hygiene, protection, sport, and industrial markets. However, antimicrobial fabrics differ in biocidal performance and durability. For example, such fabrics are used in wound dressings or bio-hazard protective [...]
In this presentation, we will report a simple and general method to synthesize ordered, three-dimensional, transparent gold NC/silica superlattices through self-assembly of water-soluble gold NC-micelles and soluble silica under controlled kinetic conditions. NC-micelles were synthesized [...]

It is our great pleasure to submit this paper, which provides the long awaited microscopic real-space information about the glass transition process in polymers. In the light of the comments made by Nobel Laureate P.W. [...]
We present a methodology for interrogating silicone-based polymer-surfactant complex films a few nanometers in thickness. The films include 2D regions of liquid character interspersed in regions of solid character. Images are radically different in a [...]
A new technique of controlling the supramolecular structure of block copolymer solutions is presented. It consists in monitoring by small angle x-ray scattering the large-scale structure of soft condensed matter and simultaneously recording its rheological [...]
Nanoscale particle sizing of colloidal suspensions can be performed with Acorn,™ a new, patented handheld device, that combines remote delivery and detection of laser light, and a direct measurement of particle size, without the use [...]
In this work the aggregates of the tetrakis(4-sulfonatophenyl)porphyrin (TPPS4) growth from solution on solid crystalline hydrophilic and hydrophobic substrates were investigated. The spatial structure of TPPS4 deposited on the surface was imaged using Transmission Electron [...]

In spite the fact that fullerene and any type of carbon are not soluble in water the main goal of this work is to produce evidence of realization of a supramolecular self-assembly of carbon structures [...]
A method for deposition of uniform monolayers of cobalt nanoparticles (size ~ 10 nm) with uniformity in the nanoscale upto the macroscale is demonstrated on a 6" wafer by a modified spin coating method. The [...]
The physical (particulate) sunscreen agents, ZnO and TiO2, are increasingly used to provide UV protection in a wide variety of cosmetic and personal care products. The particle size distribution (PSD) of the ZnO and TiO2 [...]
Self assembly monolayers (SAMs) are easily prepared nano-film, and have been widely applied to improve device surface properties and biomaterial conjugation on substrates. Among various steps, annealing is one of the general processes for the [...]
