Table of Contents

Engineering materials from the bottom up - Overview (Koopmans & Middelberg) Mechanisms and principles of 1D self-assembly of peptides into â-sheet tapes (Aggeli) Modelling multi-scale self-organisation (van der Schoot) Recombinant production of self-assembling peptides (McPherson) Inspiration from natural silk and their proteins (Shao) Surface and solution based assembly of amyloid fibrils for biomedical and nanotechnology applications (Gras) Hybrid systems engineering: polymer - peptide conjugates (Fee)


The cross-fertilization of physico-chemical and mathematical ideas has a long historical tradition. This volume of Advances in Chemical Engineering is almost completely dedicated to a conference on “Mathematics in Chemical Kinetics and Engineering” (MaCKiE-2007), which was held in Houston in February 2007, bringing together about 40 mathematicians, chemists, and chemical engineers from 10 countries to discuss the application and development of mathematical tools in their respective fields.
