Introdzution. The shapes of colloidal particles are often reasonably compact, so that no diameter greatly exceeds the cube root of the volume of the particle. On the other hand, we know many coiloids whose particles are greatly extended into sheets (bentonite), rods (tobacco virus), or flexible chains (myosin, various Iinear polymers). In some instances, a t least, solutions of such highly anisometric particles are known to exhibit remarkably great deviations from Raoult’s law, even to the… 
Self-Assembly of Faceted Colloidal Particles
A colloidal dispersion consists of insoluble microscopic particles that are suspended in a solvent. Typically, a colloid is a particle for which at least one of its dimension is within the size range
When the smallest details count
TLDR
A well-controlled curvature is imposed on large quantities of polydisperse colloidal synthetic rods from a viscous photoresin by fine-tuning the cross-link density of the resin and the temperature, showing that curvature has pronounced effects on the liquid crystalline phase behavior.
When shape is enough: from colloidal spheres to twisted polyhedra, from icosahedral to chiral order
In this thesis, we study entropy-driven phase transitions in suspensions of colloidal particles. Colloids are small particles, with typical sizes ranging from the nanometer to the micron, dispersed
Numerical study of the phase behavior of rod-like colloidal particles with attractive tips
Suspensions of anisometric particles are known to self-assemble into various liquid crystal (LC) phases, namely, the nematic, smectic (A or B or both), and in some cases, columnar phases, due to the
Theory of the depletion force due to rodlike polymers
The entropic depletion force, in colloids, arises when large particles are placed in a solution of smaller ones, and sterically constrained to avoid them. In this paper, we consider a system of two
Self-assembly of colloidal spheres and rods in external fields
Colloidal particles are applied throughout industry, for example in paints, food, personal care products, ceramics and pharmaceutics. The characterization of the structure and dynamics of colloidal
Hard-Rod Behavior in Dense Mesophases of Semiflexible and Rigid Charged Viruses
Suspensions of colloidal particles self-organize spontaneously into different states, displaying phase transitions that can be driven by entropy alone. Such mesoscopic particles usually exhibit phase
Complex Colloidal Structures by Self-assembly in Electric Fields
The central theme of this thesis is exploiting the directed self-assembly of both isotropic and anisotropic colloidal particles to achieve the fabrication of one-, two-, and three-dimensional complex
Diffuse Double-Layer Models, Long-Range Forces, and Ordering in Clay Colloids
The modern view of colloidal particle behavior in water is based on the DLVO (Derjaguin-Landau-Verwey-Overbeek) theory, which hypothesizes strictly repulsive long-range interactions among charged
Polymers at Interfaces and the Interactions in Colloidal Dispersions
Abstract Solutions of different polymers in the same solvent are incompatible as a rule and show phase separation when they are mixed. If incompatibility is also to be observed in systems where one
