Optical devices were fabricated by sandwiching a “monolithic” poly(N-isopropylacrylamide-co-N-(3-aminopropyl) methacrylamide hydrochloride) (pNIPAm-co-APMAH) microgel layer between two semitransparent Au layers. These devices, referred to as etalons, exhibit characteristic multipeak reflectance...
A versatile surface modification technique was developed to yield poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (pNIPAm) microgel-based thin films on a variety of substrates, e.g., metals, nonmetals, and polymers. Because the chemistry, and hence functionality and responsivity, of the pNIPAm-based microgels is...
In this submission, we detail a new method for detecting mouse Immunoglobulin G (IgG) utilizing fluorophore-modified antibodies and antibody-modified magnetic microparticles. This was accomplished by adding an excess amount of fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC)-modified goat anti-mouse IgG...
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...
Photonic materials (PMs) that are capable of manipulating and controlling light in systems have immense potential for the computing and communications industries. These materials are formed by assembling components of differing refractive indices in a periodic array. Light then interacts with...
Comparison of the Responsivity of Solution-Suspended and Surface-Bound Poly (N-isopropylacrylamide)-Based Microgels for Sensing ApplicationsDownload
In this submission, the phase transition behavior for poly(N-isopropylacrylamide-co-acrylic acid) (pNIPAm-co-AAc) microgels and their assemblies was investigated as a function of temperature and pH using UV–vis spectroscopy (to probe light scattering behavior) and quartz crystal microbalance with...
A device composed of a poly (N-isopropylacrylamide)-co-acrylic acid (pNIPAm-co-AAc) microgel layer sandwiched between two thin Au layers (all on a glass support) was used as a novel platform for controlled and triggered small molecule delivery. Tris (4-(dimethylamino)phenyl)methylium chloride...
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...
A device constructed by sandwiching a thin film of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide)-co-acrylic acid (pNIPAmco-AAc) microgels between two thin layers of Au (all on a glass support) was used as a novel platform for controlled release of small molecules (drugs). In this submission, the model drug tris...
Detecting solution pH changes using poly (N-isopropylacrylamide)-co-acrylic acid microgel-based etalon modified quartz crystal microbalancesDownload
Poly (N-isopropylacrylamide)-co-acrylic acid (pNIPAm-co-AAc) microgel-based etalons have been shown to have visible color and unique spectral properties, which both depend on solution temperature and pH. In this investigation, pNIPAm-co-AAc microgel-based etalons were fabricated on the Au...
