This work concerns interfacial adsorption and attachment of swollen microgel with low- to medium-level cross-linking density. Compared to colloids that form a second, dispersed phase, the suspended swollen microgel particles are ultrahigh molecular weight molecules, which are dissolved like a linear polymer, so that solvent and solute constitute only one phase. In contrast to recent literature in which microgels are treated as particles with a distinct surface, we consider solvent-solute… CONTINUE READING
