Rheology And Dynamics Of Ph–Responsive Microgel Systems
July 21-24, 2019
The colloidal phenomenon of soft particles is an important field of research due to the growing interest in a variety of important systems found in biological science, such as vesicles, bi-layers, membranes, and living cells. Synthetic mono-dispersed colloida l suspensions in the nano to micron size range are increasingly becoming important model systems for the study of a variety of phenomena observed in soft condensed matter physics, such as glass transitions and crystal nucleation. In order to understand the behavior of these complex systems, we need to elucidate the relationship between the microscopic and macroscopic properties of these systems. In this presentation, we report on a study of a microgel system that offers us a platform to understand these relationships, and the physical forces that control their behavior.
