A new way to nanostructure hydrogels: electrospun thermo-responsive islands-in-the-sea nanofibres

Wang, Jing and Sutti, Alessandra and Wang, Xungai and Lin, Tong (2012) A new way to nanostructure hydrogels: electrospun thermo-responsive islands-in-the-sea nanofibres. In: 5th Materials Research Society Fall Meeting (MRS 2011), 28 Nov-2 Dec 2011, Boston, MA. United States.


An effective strategy to produce thermo-responsive islands-in-the-sea hydrogel nanofibres was developed using a single needle electrospinning setup. The produced hydrogel nanofibre mats not only showed excellent temperature response and high response speed, but also showed nanostructured surfaces.
