Table of Contents

1. Magnetic colloids as building blocks for complex structures: Preparation and assembly
2. Dynamic assembly of magnetic nanocolloids
3. Patchy colloids: a theoretical and numerical perspective on functionalized units for self-assembly
4. Synthesis and Self-Assembly of Janus and Triblock Patchy Particles
5. Understanding the self-assembly of DNA-coated-colloids via Theory and Simulations
6. Colloidal Microfluidics


Self-assembly of Nano- and Micro-structured Materials Using Colloidal Engineering, Volume 12, covers the recent breakthroughs in the design and manufacture of functional colloids at the micro- and nanoscale level. In addition, it provides analyses on how these functionalities can be exploited to develop self-assembly pathways towards nano- and micro-structured materials. As we seek increasingly complex functions for colloidal superstructures, in silico design will play a critical role in guiding experimental fabrication by reducing the element of trial-and-error that would otherwise be involved.

In addition to novel experimental approaches, recent developments in computational modelling are also presented, along with an overview of the arsenal of designing tools that are available to the modern materials scientist.
