Spying on Self-Assembly

Laurence Duchesne’s paper “Supramolecular Domains in Mixed Peptide Self-Assembled Monolayers on Gold Nanoparticles” has been published in ChemBioChem on August 13th 2008. BBSRC has issued a press release here, and Chemistry World, the review of the Royal Society of Chemistry, has a nice report here.

The paper includes both experimental work (collaboration with Dave Fernig) and molecular dynamics simulations. The simulations were done by Sarah Harris in the School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Leeds. Have a look, they are fun (and interesting, of course!).
