Direct probing of micromechanical properties of hydrogen-bonded layer-by-layer microcapsule shells with different chemical compositions.

Abstract

The mechanical properties of hydrogen-bonded layer-by-layer (LbL) microcapsule shells constructed from tannic acid (TA) and poly(vinylpyrrolidone) (PVPON) components have been studied in both the dry and swollen states. In the dry state, the value of the elastic modulus was measured to be within 0.6-0.7 GPa, which is lower than the typical elastic modulus… (More)
