Journal Article
Parolini, L., Law, A. D., Maestro, A., Buzza, D. M. A., & Cicuta, P. (2015). Interaction between colloidal particles on an oil-water interface in dilute and dense phases. Journal of physics. an Institute of Physics journal. Condensed matter, 27(19), 194119. doi:10.1088/0953-8984/27/19/194119

The interaction between micron-sized charged colloidal particles at polar/non-polar liquid interfaces remains surprisingly poorly understood for a relatively simple physical chemistry system. By measuring the pair correlation function g(r) for differ... Read More

ABC triblock copolymer micelles: Spherical versus worm-like micelles depending on the preparation method (2015)
Journal Article
Ghasdian, N., Buzza, D. M. A., Fletcher, P. D. I., & Georgiou, T. K. (2015). ABC triblock copolymer micelles: Spherical versus worm-like micelles depending on the preparation method. Macromolecular rapid communications, 36(6), 528-532. https://doi.org/10.1002/marc.201400621

Well-defined ABC triblock copolymers based on two hydrophilic blocks, A and C, and a hydrophobic block B are synthesized and their self-assembly behaviour is investigated. Interestingly, at the same solvent concentration, pH, and temperature, differe... Read More
