Abstract: Colloidal particles at a liquid-liquid interface can order into interesting structures. In this work poly(methyl methacrylate) colloids with a core-shell structure have been synthesized and studied. They have been clustered to create anisotropic particles with regular shapes. Their structure is optimal for studies at water-oil interface with both bright field and confocal microscopy. The stability of the colloids has been tested in aqueous and organic media with single and clustered particles. Both single spherical particles and clusters have been observed at an water-oil interface. A computational project related to self-assembly problem in virus-like protein capsid is presented in
