Nanoparticles with Morphological and Functional Anisotropy – oral deadline 19 October

Deadline approaching for oral abstracts

We hope you will be able to join us for the Faraday Discussions meeting on Nanoparticles with Morphological and Functional Anisotropy taking place in Glasgow, UK from 4–6 July, 2016 which will cover the following themes:

  • Anisotropic nanoparticles – synthesis, formation mechanisms and novel characterisation tools
  • Janus and patchy particles – properties of particles with two or multiple domains
  • Particles at interfaces – morphology-dependent wetting processes and self-assembly at interfaces
  • Biomedical applications – targeting to bioimaging and drug delivery

The papers presented and a record of the discussions at the meeting will be published in the corresponding volume of Faraday Discussions.

The oral/paper abstract deadline is 19 October 2015.


Submit your abstract today!
