#647 - Supramolecular Assembly of Inorganic Materials II (TF012)
We invite contributions addressing the supramolecular self-assembly of nanoscale materials concentrating on the following two sessions. Session I centers on the directed self-assembly of nanoscale building blocks using controlled biological, biomolecular, and molecular interactions, while Session II focuses on the templated assembly of nanostructured inorganic materials, such as mesoporous/mesostructured materials, hybrid organic/inorganic porous frameworks, zeolites, and nanoparticle assemblies. Session II seeks presentations focusing on: (1) Fundamental aspects of self-assembly, (2) control of morphology and nanostructure, (3) compositional control, (4) structural properties, and (5) synthesis mechanisms.
