Propelling Microdroplets Generated and Sustained by Liquid-liquid Phase Separation in Confined Spaces

Soft Matter, 2021, Accepted ManuscriptDOI: 10.1039/D1SM00231G, PaperXuehua Zhang, Jae Bem You, Gilmar F. Arends, Jiasheng Qian, Yibo Chen, Detlef Lohse, John ShawFlow transport in confined spaces is ubiquitous in technological processes, ranging from separation and purification of pharmaceutical ingredients by microporous membranes and drug delivery...

Ordering leads to multiple fast tracks in simulated collective escape of human crowds

Soft Matter, 2021, Accepted ManuscriptDOI: 10.1039/D1SM00033K, PaperChen Cheng, Jinglai Li, Zhenwei YaoElucidating emergent regularities in intriguing crowd dynamics is a fundamental scientific problem arising in multiple fields. In this work, based on the social force model, we simulate the typical scenario...The content of this RSS Feed (c) The Royal...

Cation-Based Approach To Morphological Diversity Of Diphenylalanine Dipeptide Structures

Soft Matter, 2021, Accepted ManuscriptDOI: 10.1039/D1SM00083G, PaperHakan ErdoğanDifferent approaches are taken in order to examine the spontaneous arrangement processes of dipeptide structures. One of these approaches is to examine the effects of common cations on dipeptide structures'...The content of this RSS Feed (c) The Royal Society of Chemistry

Hysteresis in spreading and retraction of liquid droplets on parallel fiber rails

Soft Matter, 2021, Accepted ManuscriptDOI: 10.1039/D1SM00126D, PaperFang Wang, Ulf D. SchillerWetting and spreading of liquids on fibers occurs in many natural and artificial processes. Unlike on a planar substrate, a droplet attached to one or more fibers can assume several...The content of this RSS Feed (c) The Royal Society of Chemistry

Chiral phase-coexistence in compressed double-twist elastomers

Soft Matter, 2021, Accepted ManuscriptDOI: 10.1039/D1SM00181G, PaperMatthew P Leighton, Laurent Kreplak, Andrew David RutenbergWe adapt the theory of anisotropic rubber elasticity to model cross-linked double-twist liquid crystal cylinders such as exhibited in biological systems. In mechanical extension we recover strain-straightening, but with an...The...

Characterization of the volume fraction of soft deformable microgels by means of small-angle neutron scattering with contrast variation

Soft Matter, 2021, Accepted ManuscriptDOI: 10.1039/D1SM00277E, PaperAndrea ScottiThe volume occupied by colloids in a suspension - namely the volume fraction - is the thermodynamic variable that determines the phase behavior of these systems. While for hard incompressible...The content of this RSS Feed (c) The Royal Society of Chemistry

Electric-field-induced deformation, yielding, and crumpling of jammed particle shells formed on non-spherical Pickering droplets

Soft Matter, 2021, Advance ArticleDOI: 10.1039/D1SM00006C, PaperZechen Xiong, Hang Xiao, Xi ChenA peacock feather-inspired fractal-like soft expandable design is proposed and analyzed with theoretic and FE methods, showing unique mechanical properties and great potential in metamaterials and soft robots.To cite this article before page numbers are assigned,...

Spatio-temporally controlled suppression of the coffee-ring phenomenon by cellulose nanofibers

Soft Matter, 2021, Advance ArticleDOI: 10.1039/D1SM00315A, Paper Open Access   This article is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported Licence.Naoto Koyama, Itsuo HanasakiA droplet with a small portion of cellulose nanofibers (CNFs) has low viscosity to be compatible with inkjet discharge, but CNFs form structural order to prevent...

Self-healing, recyclable, and degradable fire-retardant gelatin-based biogel coating for green buildings

Soft Matter, 2021, Accepted ManuscriptDOI: 10.1039/D1SM00435B, PaperLei Zhang, Yubin Huang, Ping Sun, Yun Hai, Saihua JiangWood is one of the oldest building materials and commonly employed in construction. However, the inherent fire hazard of wood restricts its practical application. Fire retardant coatings have been proved...The content of this RSS...
