Star-shaped droplets

Droplets subject to electric fields may obtain spectacular morphologies. Starting from the seminal works of Rayleigh (1882), Zeleny (1917) and G. I. Taylor (1964), the behaviour of droplets in an electric field continues to fascinate scientists due to their numerous applications. Charged droplets are often generated by electrospray ionization methods. We have found by molecular simulations that when a nano-drop comprising a single spherical central ion and dielectric solvent is charged above a well-defined threshold, it acquires a stable star morphology [S.

Modeling the stability of non-covalent protein complexes and assemblies

Protein-protein interactions (PPIs) play a pivotal role in all biological processes, including signal transduction, enzymatic catalysis as well as the formation of protein quaternary structures.

Congratulations to Myong In Oh

It is my great pleasure to congratulate our own Myong Oh for receiving the Canada Graduate Scholarship – Michael Smith Foreign Study Supplements (CGS-MSFSS) award for spending three months in the computational group in the Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge. He intends to continue there his studies on charged droplets. I am sure that a lot of new ideas and projects will come out from his residence there.
