Light switchable optical materials from azobenzene crosslinked poly(N-isopropylacrylamide)-based microgelsDownload
4,40 -Di(acrylamido)-azobenzene was used as a crosslinker in poly(Nisopropylacrylamide)-based microgels. The microgels were subsequently used to fabricate microgel-based optical materials (etalons), which exhibited optical properties that were switchable upon exposure to UV irradiation. We also...
Responsive polymer-based materials have found numerous applications due to their ease of synthesis and the variety of stimuli that they can be made responsive to. In this review, we highlight the group’s efforts utilizing thermoresponsive poly (N-isopropylacrylamide) (pNIPAm) microgel-based...
Poly (N-isopropylacrylamide) (pNIPAm)-based hydrogels and hydrogel particles (microgels) have been extensively studied since their discovery a number of decades ago. While their utility seems to have no limit, this feature article is focused on their development and application for sensing small...
Responsive polymer-based materials (or smart materials) have found numerous uses over the years due to their ease of synthesis and various responsivities/functionalities. Of them, stimuli-responsive hydrogel particles (microgels) have generated a lot of interest, and have been used for a number...
