Multi-Scale Modelling & Physical Chemistry of Colloids

The 2021 meeting will celebrate both the 99th anniversary of the Colloid Society and the 120th General Assembly of the Bunsen Society.

The conference focuses on two main topics: Colloidal Science studies matter that is structured on the nanometer scale. It is the realm where polymers and membranes form their shape, where aggregates of amphiphilic molecules form, and where particles coagulate. Forces on different length scales drive colloidal behavior: the atomistic structure gives rise to attractive and repulsive forces.

These interactions determine structure on a larger scale and drive colloidal processes. Multi-scale modelling methods are inspired by this interplay of diff erent length scales and combine simulations with atomistic and coarse-grained resolutions. Parallel sessions will be held to present most recent results from all other fields of physical chemistry – from catalysis to thermodynamics, from gas phase to solid state, from electrochemical studies to time-resolved spectroscopy.
