[Illinois] Molecular modeling of structure and salt-responsive morphology of polyelectrolyte-based materials

Published on

Abstract

In this talk, I will illustrate our recent progress in prediction of responsive morphologies of polyelectrolytes on the example of DNA- based materials. we used atomistic molecular dynamics simulations to determine the sequence, length, and solvent contributions on the persistence length of ssDNA. Our methodology permitted us to construct a morphological diagram of polyelectrolyte block copolymers in aqueous solution and evaluate the size of aggregates obtained along with their scaling relation

Professor Yingling is an associate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering of UNC-CH & NCSU and the Department of Chemistry at Duke University. Her research interests are focused on the development of multiscale molecular modeling of various processes in composite, soft and biological materials a to fundamentally understand the structure- property of soft materials systems formed through the process of self-assembly.
