Title: Self-assembly of mono- and poly-dispersed nanoparticles on emulsion droplets: antagonistic vs. synergistic effects as a function of particle size

Abstract

In this work, using dissipative particle dynamics simulations, we provide fundamental insights into the self-assembly of nanoparticles (NPs) on oil droplet surfaces.
