We report the application of the "internal trigger" approach to multistep microfluidic polymerization reactions conducted in droplets, namely, polyaddition and polycondensation. We hypothesized and experimentally established that heat generated in an exothermic free radical polymerization of an acrylate monomer (Reaction 1) triggers the polycondensation of(More)
It has been shown that virtual reality (VR) can be used to train mine workers for safety in critical situations [4]. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has a virtual reality (VR) laboratory on its Pittsburgh campus. Currently, input devices for the system are an Xbox 360 game pad and an air mouse. Due to the high cost and(More)
