The thermodynamics and intermolecular interactions in solutions with nano-scale inhomogeneity and/or with fine tunability are investigated by statistical-mechanical theory and molecular simulation. On the basis of the extended concept of solvation, molecular-level analyses and design are conducted for partitioning or binding of molecules both in homogeneous media such as ionic liquid, supercritical fluid, and polymer and in soft, self-organizing aggregates such as micelle and lipid membrane.
