Title

Molecular dynamics study of nanoparticle self-assembly

Author

Abstract

"Self-assembly is one of the most promising methods for producing ordered structures of nanoparticles to meet technological needs. Despite substantial efforts, existing methods are still highly empirical and less satisfactory. Many aspects remain poorly understood and can benefit from quantitative fundamental studies. In this project, molecular dynamics (MD) simulations are carried out to investigate in atomic details the interactions and behavior of nanoparticles under selected self-assembling conditions, with particular focuses on the effects of surfactant and solvent"--Abstract, leaf iii.
