Programma dettagliato e risultati di apprendimento attesi

In the second Unit of the course, the basic concepts developed in Unit B are applied to the investigation of more complex soft materials such as “active” colloids, polyelectrolytes. and amphiphilic (surfactant) solutions. The ideas developed along the whole course are then applied to the investigation of the structure and phase behavior of biological macromolecules (proteins, nucleic acids). The final part of the course is dedicated to the presentation of the main experimental techniques used to investigate soft materials. 

The course focus mostly on the following subjects:

a) Active colloids: kinds of active colloids available, “phase diagrams”, types of  motion and collective dynamics;

b) Polyelectrolytes: intra-chain electrostatic interactions; Manning condensation; counterion condensations; polyelectrolyte gels.

c) Surfactant solutions. Classes of surfactant and their practical applications. Micellization and basic principles of detergency. Self-assembly of surfactant molecules: micelles, “living polymers”, inverted micelles, and vesicles. Emulsions and their stability. Micro and nano-emulsions, and their impact in food preparation, drug delivery, and enhanced oil recovery. Pickering emulsions.

d) Biological fluids. Protein structure. Enzymes and biocatalysis. Transport , structural, and membrane proteins. Protein crystallization. Structure of the nucleic acids and DNA replication. Molecular machines.

e) Experimental methods to investigate soft and biological materials.  Light Scattering, correlation spectroscopy, video microscopy, and microfluidics techniques (with lab presentations).   


Note Sulla Modalità di valutazione

The course is organized as a series standard classroom lectures, in which the main theoretical arguments are developed, supported by the discussion of specific applications, to be regarded as exercitations. The final test consists of a traditional oral exam.
