Gluing gels: A nanoparticle solution.


For over 200,000 years humans have been sticking things together1, yet when it comes to gluing soft, squishy and slippery materials, such as hydrogels, strong adhesion is notoriously difficult to accomplish. Many adhesives are made of polymers because, unlike other materials, they ensure good contact between surfaces and they can dissipate energy under… (More)
