A great deal of progress has been made recently in synthesizing and assembling nanoscale structures with interesting and unique properties. We will present some new strategies based on using catalysts to synthesize unique structures not easily synthesized using traditional techniques. These systems will be simulated using de novo atomistic and mesoscale simulation techniques to generate the structures and properties of some nanoscale novel devices.
In addition, we will propose some nanoscale catalysts that might serve as useful reactors and energy sources for nanoscale systems. This will also be illustrated by atomistic simulations.
