April 4, 2013
Time:3:30-4:30 p.m.
Description:The McKetta Department of Chemical Engineering Graduate Seminar Series presents "Polyhedral Geometries in the Living World," a talk by Dr. Monica Olvera de la Cruz, Northwestern University.

Platonic and Archimedean solids have beguiled scientists, artists and mathematicians for millennia. In recent times polyhedral shapes have been identified at the microscopic level in crystalline shells such as fullerenes, viral capsids and protein-based bacterial organelles. The most frequently found polyhedron in homogeneous crystalline shells is the icosahedron. Olvera de la Cruz and colleagues demonstrate that other geometries arise spontaneously in shells formed by more than one component.
Location:Chemical and Petroleum Engineering Building (CPE) 2.218
