Dynamics in small confining systems--2003: symposium held December 1-4, 2003, Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A.
Interfacial science has rapidly expanded beyond the original realm of chemistry to include physics, mechanical and chemical engineering, biology, materials science, and other specialized subfields. This volume, the sixth in a popular series from the Materials Research Society, covers a rapidly growing body of scientific work dealing with the dynamics and thermodynamics of molecular systems in spatial confinement. Participants from various disciplines share their views on how ultrasmall geometries can force a system to behave in ways significantly different than its behavior in bulk, how this difference affects molecular properties, and how it is probed. Investigators are currently studying phenomena in a broad range of materials that includes porous glasses, polymer networks, micelles, microemulsions, zeolites and biological systems, to name just a few. Confinement of liquids is also an important issue in fluidics, separations technology, and tribology. Technological and technical advances in experiment, theory, and computation over the past 25 years have greatly increased our understanding of dynamics in confined systems, but this volume proves that there is still much to be learned. Topics include: confined and anomalous dynamics in porous, supramolecular and biological systems; diffusion and reactions in confinement; new methods to probe dynamics in confinement (scattering, NMR, optical probes and direct imaging techniques); liquids at interfaces; microfluidics and hydrodynamics near solid surfaces; friction and structural properties of fluids under shear; dynamic force spectroscopy; and numerical modeling and computational techniques of confined systems.
