Frugal Science: Exploring Sub-Nanometer Scales using Droplets

【Abstract】

Liquids on surfaces, either as droplets or adsorbed films, embody both complexity and simplicity and, are erroneously portrayed as information poor or worse as an inconvenience. Thermodynamically, however, droplets capture surface force balance hence are a fascinating tool in understanding sub-nanometer surface structures. This talk will highlight how a simple relation of Gibbs free energy between a droplet and a self-assembled monolayer can be used to reveal gaps in our understanding of these ‘simple’ systems.

表面上的液体,无论是液滴还是吸附膜,既简单又复杂,还被错误地描述为信息贫乏和不方便。然而,从热力学上讲,液滴捕获表面力平衡,因此是理解亚纳米表面结构的一个有力的工具。本次演讲将重点介绍如何利用一个简单的吉布斯自由能关系来揭示我们对这些“简单”系统的理解差距。

From the original work by Jacob Sagiv, the Whitesides-Porter discrepancy, to understanding superhydrophobic surfaces, we will explore the chemistry, challenges, and opportunities for new advances. Understanding the free energy minimized state of a droplet, we reveal complex interactions at the single carbon-carbon bond level and related conformational dynamics at the interface. Complimentary studies through surface sensitive sum-frequency generation and molecular electronics lead to strong indication that droplets are information rich under felicitous choice of conditions. This is an ultimate demonstration of frugal nanoscience!

从Jacob Sagiv的原始工作,Whitesides-Porter差异,到理解超疏水表面,我们将探索化学,挑战和新进展的机会。了解液滴的自由能最小化状态,揭示了单碳-碳键水平的复杂相互作用和界面上相关的构象动力学。通过表面敏感和频率产生和分子电子学的互补研究强有力地表明,液滴在适当的条件下信息是丰富的。这是节约纳米科学的终极证明!

Besides their use as probes, liquid droplets are also good synthons for nanomaterials synthesis. This will be highlighted through a discussion on liquid-derived synthons for graphene-coated metal oxides. Utilizing droplets, we synthesize materials that are otherwise challenging to make.

除了用作探针外,液滴也是合成纳米材料的好工具。这将通过对石墨烯涂层金属氧化物的液体衍生合成物的讨论来强调。利用液滴我们合成了原本很难制造的材料。
