Hot Paper: Patchy colloidal particles

Read for free until 3 May>>

Researchers investigate the thermodynamics and percolation regimes of model binary mixtures of patchy colloidal particles in this Hot Paer. Up to four percolated strucuters at low temperature were found. Modelling such as this is of interest for tailoring the self-assembly of colloids into functional structures.
