Synthesis of photo-cross-linkable microgel colloids for cluster formation studies.


In many physical processes involving colloidal particles, transient structures (e.g., in transient particle gels, phase-separating suspensions) are created. Freezing these structures by chemically inter-cross-linking the particles could be an intriguing route to create network structures with special (e.g., mechanical) properties. Alternatively… (More)
