Porous self-protonating spiropyran-based NIPAAm gels with improved reswelling kinetics
[EN] This study focuses on improving the speed ofactuation of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide)-based photoresponsive gels containing copolymerised spiropyran as the photoswitch and acrylic acid as the proton source. The improvement ...
Adaptive coatings based on polyaniline for direct 2D observation of diffusion processes in microfluidic systems
[EN] Therefore the understanding and proper evaluation of the flow and mixing behaviour at microscale becomes a very important issue. In this study, the diffusion behaviour of two reacting solutions of HCI and NaOH were ...
Light-responsive Materials for Microfluidic Applications
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2018-03-07)
While the microfluidic device itself may be small, often the equipment required to control fluidics in thechip unit is large e.g. pumps, valves and mixing units, which can severely limit practical use and functionalscalability. ...
Poly(ionic Liquid) Thermo-responsive Hydrogel Microfluidic Actuators
tributylhexyl phosphonium sulfopropylacrylate (PSPA) poly(ionic liquid) (PILc) hydrogels as temperature controlled actuators in microfluidic devices. The hydrogel size is modulated by localised changes in its temperature ...
Driving Flows in Microfluidic Paper-Based Analytical Devices with a Cholinium Based Poly Ionic Liquid Hydrogel
Paper microfluidics technology requires effective handling and control of fluids, and this remains as asignificant obstacle for their accessibility by end-users, inhibiting their transition from the laboratory intothe ...
