If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Xavier Moya.

During the past 60 years, the traditional picture of entropy as a measure of disorder has needed revision. This was largely driven by computer simulations, but has been supported by experiments on colloidal systems. In my talk I will discuss some old examples of the unexpected role of entropy as an ordering force, but I will also discuss more recent surprises, such as the importance of entropy in the self-assembly of DNA -functionalized colloids and its possible relevance for targeted drug delivery.
