Summary and Info
The book provides experienced as well as young researchers with a topical view of the vibrant field of soft nanotechnology. In addition to elucidating the underlying concepts and principles that drive continued innovation, major parts of each chapter are devoted to detailed discussions of potential and already realized applications of micro- and nanogel- based materials. Examples of the diverse areas impacted by these materials are biocompatible coatings for implants, films for controlled drug release, self-healing soft materials and responsive hydrogels that react to varying pH conditions, temperature or light.Content: Chapter 1 Thermally Sensitive Microgels: From Basic Science to Applications (pages 1–32): He Cheng and Guangzhao ZhangChapter 2 Thermosensitive Core–Shell Microgels: Basic Concepts and Applications (pages 33–61): Yan Lu and Matthias BallauffChapter 3 Core–Shell Particles with a Temperature?Sensitive Shell (pages 63–80): Haruma KawaguchiChapter 4 pH?Responsive Nanogels: Synthesis and Physical Properties (pages 81–115): Beng Hoon Tan, Jeremy Pang Kern Tan and Kam Chiu TamChapter 5 Poly(N?Vinylcaprolactam) Nano? and Microgels (pages 117–140): Cheng Cheng and Andrij PichChapter 6 Doubly Crosslinked Microgels (pages 141–167): Brian R.
