The area of anisotropic particles has lead to the development of novel complex materials. In particular, deviations from a spherical shape have lead to interesting and unexpected changes in macroscopic properties. In this session we are interested in contributions in the following focus areas: (i) novel synthesis techniques to control the anisotropy of particles, (ii) understanding how particle anisotropy affects microstructural arrangements or rheological differences between spherical and anisotropic particle suspensions from experiments and modeling, and (iii) applications of anisotropic particles, examples include new crystal structures, sensors, and photonic band gap materials.
