Sample text

There is a lack of simple and controllable methods for extraction of colloidal crystals from their aqueous environment and mounting or shaping them into usable solid objects. A step towards producing and processing colloidal crystalline materials is assembly of spherical or globular crystalline structures (microballs) in aqueous droplets suspended on the surface of a heavier liquid immiscible with water. Here, surface tension forces can be controlled to guide the formation of the particles. The colloidal particles in the suspended template droplets are gradually concentrated by drying to the point of transition to an ordered state.

1999). A. , 1998). , 1998). , 1995; Zana, 1996). However, most efforts to control surfactant properties focus on proper choice of the chemical structure of the amphiphilic molecule. The surfactant properties of macromolecules (and hence their ability to selfassemble into functionally interesting motifs) can be controlled with high sensitivity by manipulating molecular architecture without changing the chemical identity of the amphiphilic moieties. In addition to differences in surfactant properties between macromolecules in different architectural classes, subtle variations in an architectural class also lead to significant effects.
