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

2) Applying additional stresses ( Van Blaaderen ) Ex. a hard wall that restricts the states of the colloidal suspension, electric and magnetic fields, surface stresses induced by drying, oder imposed by patterned surfaces, gravitational effects,etc.
