Marcelo Lozada-Cassou: „Entropy driven self-assembly mechanism”
Petroleum Institute, Mexico City, Mexico

Gerardo Odriozola, Felipe Jiménez-Ángeles, and Marcelo Lozada-Cassou

Self-assembly mechanisms are studied through many-body physics methods, i.e., integral equation theories and Monte Carlo simulations. Simple models for self-assembly of DNA, confined into phospholipid bilayers, and key-lock enzymatic catalytic reactions are considered. This last theoretical study inspired self-assembly experiments of ad-hoc design colloids, with an excellent qualitative agreement with our proposed key-lock mechanism.
