Profile

In the scientific world I have a slightly different name. Please don't try to use the spelling used on top of this page if you like to find my publications in Web of Science or another publication database. That is the "official" spelling of my name as in the passport. All my publications are signed as Andrei V. Petukhov or A.V. Petukhov. For historical reasons and due to the ambiguity of the transliteration from Cyrillic alphabet, my official name is not exactly the same as my scientific name. My publications and their citation score can be seen at my researcherID page, http://www.researcherid.com/rid/B-8235-2009. You can also consult my Google scholar page, my ORCID page and my ResearchGate page

In Utrecht I am known as "the SAXS man". Here SAXS stands for Small-Angle X-ray Scattering. My group does many experiments at synchrotron facilities, mostly at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF). We intensively use the Dutch-Belgian beamline BM-26 DUBBLE and other ESRF public beamlines such as ID10, ID02, ID06, ID01, ID11... We do a lot of SAXS and grazing-incidence SAXS (GISAXS), high-resolution x-ray diffraction (XRD) and GIXRD. Recently, we started to play with various x-ray microscopy techniques. 

My scientific interests are mostly related to self-organisation of colloids of various shape. We use spheres and cubes, platelets, rods and boards, complex-shape particles with protrusions. We vary the details of interparticle interactions, we apply different external fields and we look at the confinement effects. It is a lot of fun! 

If you like to learn more, please read our recent reviews on particle shape effects & their SAXS studies (2015) and entropic patchiness (2017). If you have interesting results on any kind of designed colloidal self-assembly, please consider publishing your results in our special issue in Materials, which I edit together with Gert Jan Vroege. Deadline is September 30, 2017.

This photo is taken in May 2017 in the University of Oxford during my 2-months sabbatical at the Physical and Theoretical Chemistry Laboratory. One can see three organisers of the Liquid Matter Conference (LMC-6) in Utrecht in 2005; from left to right: Dirk Aarts, AVP and Roel Dullens. It was fun to wear the LMC-6 T-shirts again to say hello to the organisers and participants of LMC-10, which takes place twelve years later in Ljubljana.

Self-assembly of colloidal particles into various crystalline and liquid-crystalline structures have been widely studied as a model of crystallisation of atomic and molecular systems as well as a route to photonic materials. The application of X-ray diffraction (XRD) to colloidal crystals is challenging due to many orders of magnitude difference between the size of a colloid and an X-ray wavelength. Angular resolutions of the order of a microradian are required to measure the intrinsic width of the diffraction peaks. Recent experiments performed at beamlines ID10A TROÏKA and BM26 DUBBLE met the challenge... (ESRF Highlights 2005)

Self-organisation of colloidal hard spheres into crystalline structures provides an important model of atomic crystal growth and attracts significant attention as a technique for inexpensive, large-scale fabrication of photonic materials.

Project:
Chiral colloids
01.11.2014 to 01.11.2019
General project description 

Chirality is abundant in nature and plays an important role in biology, chemistry and physics. Symmetry breaking and handedness establishment lead to essentially novel phenomena such as coupling of the translational degrees of freedom and self-propelling.
Within the proposed research, we shall develop novel synthesis methods to fabricate colloids with chiral shape resembling that of DNA. To this end we shall use the molecular/colloidal co-assembly method recently discovered by us. In this approach molecular self-assembly of surfactant (SDS) and cyclodextrin (β-CD) complexes yields hollow tubes of a well-defined size, which confine colloidal particles in their interior. The chiral assemblies are then formed due to simple geometrical restrictions. The co-assembly approach will be further optimised to increase the yield of chiral assemblies and to gain better control of their geometrical parameters. This will be achieved by varying details of the SDS@2β-CD system as well as by testing other molecular tube-forming systems. The crucial step of this proposal is to develop synthesis methods to fix the generated dynamic colloidal assemblies in order to fabricate chiral colloidal particles, which will be stable after the cylindrical confinement is removed.
The synthesised particles will then be used to study the effects of chirality on their anisotropic Brownian and induced motion, self-propelling, etc. We shall subsequently develop separation techniques to yield monodisperse fractions with well-defined handedness. We shall study the interactions of chiral colloids with liquid-crystalline chiral media such as the cholesteric phase, which can provide new means to influence the latter with possible novel applications in the display technology and photonics. Furthermore, we shall investigate the effects of the particle chirality on their pair-wise interactions such as excluded volume, hydrodynamic and screened electrostatic, which can play a role for biological macromolecules. Finally, studies of the self-assembly of chiral colloids will be initiated.

Project:
Colloidal Chirality in Confinement
15.03.2014 to 15.03.2018
General project description 

There is a need for chiral structures on colloidal length scales, for example, to control the optical properties of materials. Although examples exist in nature of materials that self-assemble into chiral structures, the mechanisms for the transfer of chirality on a molecular length scale to the colloidal length scale are often unclear. The objective of this proposal is to study chiral self-assembly on a colloidal length scale in confinement. We will focus on the self-assembly of cellulose, known to show a chiral nematic phase, in the presence of temperature reversible supramolecular microtubules of sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) and β-cyclodextrin (β-CD). The microtubules are a versatile model for confining pores, while allowing in-situ measurement of the structure and dynamics of the co-assembly. Moreover, we can modify the microtubules using conventional wet-chemical methods...

Project:
Colloids with a valence: a new model system to study self-organization. 01.01.2011 to 01.01.2016
General project description

The objective of the proposed research is to develop colloidal particles with adjustable valence, and study their aggregation properties. Here, ‘valence’ is defined broadly as a measure for the potential number of bonds formed with other colloids, and corresponds to the number of sticky patches on the surface of a colloidal particle. We have recently developed a method to produce colloidal particles with adjustable number of patches and angles between them, see [Kraft et al., JACS 131, 1182, (2009); Soft Matter DOI: 10.1039/b910593j (2009)]. We propose to exploit and explore this unique system by making the patches sticky...

A citation from the students' evaluation of the ASSM course in 2016: "Andrei is een erg enthousiaste docent. Het is een feest om naar zijn colleges te gaan, zelfs op vrijdagochtend. Erg leuk om een docent te hebben die met zo veel passie kan vertellen over zijn vak!" The emphasized text says that it is a feast to come to Andrei's lectures, even on Friday in the morning. I do not know who of the students wrote this but it is very pleasant to hear such a reaction and it motivates me to do my teaching even better next time.
