A series of pyridine-functionalized poly (N-isopropylacrylamide)- based microgels were synthesized. Subsequently, a structured photonic device was fabricated by sandwiching the microgels between two thin Au layers, and their response to CO2 investigated. We show that devices show an optical...
In this submission, two independent sets of microgels were synthesized that exhibit pH responsivity over different solution pH ranges. The microgels were synthesized by copolymerizing two different comonomers with poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (pNIPAm). The microgels copolymerized with acrylic acid...
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...
My Ph.D. research involved the generation of stimuli responsive poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (pNIPAm)-based microgels and the modification of their chemistry to generate a series of pH responsive microgel-based optical devices (etalons). The pH responsivity of the synthesized microgels was used...
Sequential and controlled release of small molecules from poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) microgel-based reservoir devicesDownload
Systems composed of a poly(N-isopropylacrylamide)-co-acrylic acid (pNIPAm-co-AAc) microgels (AAc-MG) and poly(N-isopropylacrylamide-3-(acrylamido)phenylboronic acid) (pNIPAm-co-APBA) microgels (APBA-MG) were used to sequentially release small molecules to a system in a controlled and triggered...
Stimuli-responsive polymers are capable of changing their chemical and/or physical properties in response to environmental stimuli. This unique feature has allowed stimuli-responsive polymers to be used in a variety of applications. In this review, we present a basic introduction to the theories...
