Structural Studies of Colloids and Complex Fluids near Interfaces

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

Symposium Organizers:
Robert M. Suter
Carnegie Mellon University
Joseph Zasadzinski
University of California at Santa Barbara

Recent applications of optical, electron, and scanning probe microscopies as well as light, x-ray, and neutron scattering have led to new insights into organization and order in colloids, biomaterials, and other forms of soft condensed matter near interfaces. Of special interest is the analysis of such measurements to provide fundamental physical properties and an understanding of structure-function relationships. Discussion of new techniques and novel applications of existing techniques are also welcome.

Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
Interfacially dominated structure and properties of:
    Microemulsions, micelles and other surfactant solutions
    Liposomes, vesicles, and other biomimetic structures
    Polymers and liquid crystalline systems

This symposium will feature a keynote lecture by
Prof. Daniel Schwartz, Department of Chemistry, Tulane University
"How Do Self-Assembled Monolayers Grow?"
