Summary

This article summarizes several new developments of colloid science in two aspects: "directed" assembly of colloidal particles and understanding in rheology of colloidal suspensions.

Directed Assembly

1) Using depletion interaction

  Controllable elements: 
  1.surface treatment
  2.solvent choice
  3.addition of other materials
