Structural rearrangement in a latex powder during dry sintering at temperatures higher than the minimum film formation temperature was investigated by means of synchrotron small-angle X-ray scattering. Two major effects were identified: (1) Deformation of latex particles leads to a closure of voids between them and an extensive perfectioning of the face(More)
Temperature-dependent microrheology of a concentrated charge-stabilized poly(methyl methacrylate) colloidal dispersion with different salt concentrations was investigated by diffusing wave spectroscopy in backscattering mode. The critical temperature where the system undergoes aggregation and gelation depends upon the particle volume fraction or salt(More)
The influence of solvent annealing on microscopic deformational behavior of a styrene/n-butyl acrylate copolymer latex film subjected to uniaxial tensile deformation was studied by small-angle X-ray scattering. It was demonstrated that the microscopic deformation mechanism of the latex films transformed from a nonaffine deformation behavior to an affine(More)
Regulating stem cells by microRNA (miRNA) is promising in regenerative medicine. However, non-viral transfection is usually transient while stably lentiviral transfection is accompanied with oncogenic risk. In the study, we explored the feasibility to retain the microRNAs within biopolymer hydrogels for their long-lasting working and sustaining stimulation(More)
The structural evolution of a colloidal crystal fiber during heating and annealing was followed by in situ synchrotron small-angle X-ray scattering. The polymer dispersion (with a particle size of 118 nm) from which the fibers were formed by directed drying contained emulsifier and salt. A cellular structure formed upon drying in which the percolating phase(More)
