Yusheng publishes in Macromolecular Rapid Communications!


thermoresponsive leaf-like structure

Yusheng’s led work in the printing of dynamically reconfigurable materials has been published in Macromolecular Rapid Communications (DOI: 10.1002/marc.201900191), on June 4, 2019. In this study, titled “Directed Printing and Reconfiguration of Thermoresponsive Silica-pNIPAM Nanocomposites” we show how addition of silica nanoparticles affects the mechanical properties of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (pNIPAM).

This work was done in collaboration with Dr. Jung and his student Jorge Belgodere from the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering at LSU.
