Physical and Chemical Issues in Self-Assembly on Surfaces

75th A.C.S. Colloid and Surface Science Symposium
Carnegie Mellon University
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
June 10-13, 2001

Symposium Organizers:
John Hemminger
University of California at Irvine
John Yates
University of Pittsburgh

The physical issues which control the properties of self-assembled layers on surfaces will be discussed. Methods for investigating the molecular properties of assembling structures with various physical measurement technologies will be emphasized. Four invited speakers will lead independent sessions dealing with these issues. Persons from all areas of colloid and surface science are invited.

Our four invited speakers are:
Prof. N. Abbott, University of Wisconsin
Prof. C. Lieber, Harvard University
Prof. C. Mirkin, Northwestern University
Prof. G. Whitesides, Harvard University

Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
Relations between monolayer structure and function
Role of head group surface structure in determining monolayer structure
Characterization and control of defect structures
Physical probes of adsorbed molecules before and after assembly
