• #### Synthesis of narrow sized silver nanoparticles in the absence of capping ligands in helical microreactors ﻿

(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017)
This paper demonstrates the critical effect of the curvature of microreactors on the size distribution of silver nanoparticles during their continuous synthesis in the absence of capping ligands. By a combination of ...
• #### Secondary nucleation of monomers on fibril surface dominates $\alpha$-synuclein aggregation and provides autocatalytic amyloid amplification ﻿

(Cambridge University Press, 2017-01-01)
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is characterized by proteinaceous aggregates named Lewy Bodies and Lewy Neurites containing $\alpha$-synuclein fibrils. The underlying aggregation mechanism of this protein is dominated by a secondary ...
• #### Reactive-convective dissolution in a porous medium: the storage of carbon dioxide in saline aquifers ﻿

(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017-01-07)
We quantify the destabilising effect of a first-order chemical reaction on the fingering instability of a diffusive boundary layer in a porous medium. Using scaling, we show that the dynamics of such a reactive boundary ...
• #### Atomic-scale origin of dynamic viscoelastic response and creep in disordered solids ﻿

(American Physical Society, 2017-02-01)
Viscoelasticity has been described since the time of Maxwell as an interpolation of purely viscous and purely elastic response, but its microscopic atomic-level mechanism in solids has remained elusive. We studied three ...
