A funding opportunity notice from the NSF states: "Currently, emphasis is placed on molecular engineering approaches at interfaces, especially as applied to the nano-processing of soft materials. Molecules at interfaces with functional interfacial properties are of special interest and have uses in many new technologies, based on nano-fabrication. These interfacial molecules may have biomolecular functions at the micro- and nanoscale. Interfacial materials are generally formed through molecular self-directed, -templated and/or -assembly and they are driven primarily by thermodynamic intermolecular forces, although may be influenced by flow and electrical forces. In some cases, these interfacial processes may also be supplemented by weak chemical reactions. Complex simulations of molecular systems are often used in molecular design of interfaces, if possible, in conjunction with experimental comparisons. New theories and complex simulation approaches are supported for determining the transport and thermodynamic properties of fluids and fluid mixtures in biological and other fluids with complex molecules in the bulk phase and at interfaces, in membranes, two-phase mixtures, and in a nano environment. Many of the physical systems involve polymer and surfactant molecules, as well as special biomolecules. Research is supported in the three fundamental areas that could lead to more economical and environmentally benign processing, improved water quality, and novel functional materials for sensors, in industrial, environmental, and biomedical settings. Nanotechnology plays a critical role in most of these new areas."
