New model gives better control of self-assembly processes

Researchers have developed a new model that allows better control of self-assembly, the process through which molecules aggregate by themselves into larger clusters. This model could be used in the production of plastic solar cells, and is an interesting step in the long?term process of developing a synthetic cell.
