Self-organization at active interfaces

07/2007 - 06/2010

This project deals with theoretical analysis and modelling of self-organized processed at active interfaces in chemical and biological systems. Three systems far from thermodynamic equilibrium are investigated: A. Effects of promoters on pattern-forming catalytic surface reactions, B. Chiral molecules in Langmuir monolayers with throughflow of small molecules and C. Biochemically regulated domain formation in cellular membranes triggered by protein-lipid interactions.
