Wilhelm Huck and coworkers publish in Nature Nanotechnology

Prof. Wilhelm Huck and dr. Evan Spruijt (RU) and coworkers publish on dissipative adaptation in driven self-assembly in Nature Nanotechnology. They show that open compartments are used to modulate the rates of dissipative self-assembly by restricting the absorption of energy from the environment. This might eventually provide a general route to dissipatively adapting nanosystems exhibiting life-like behaviour.
