    Creation of nanostructures utilisins near-critical fluids: The gas-liquid coexistence curves terminate at the critical point. As fluids approach their critical points, large molecular clusters are formed and as a result, the physical properties such as the specific heat and compressibility diverge. A variety of nanostructures are formed via self-assembly near the critical points. I show carbon oni... View full abstract»
