Can small air bubbles probe very low frother concentration faster?

Soft Matter, 2021, Accepted ManuscriptDOI: 10.1039/D1SM01318A, PaperPiotr Pawliszak, Vamseekrishna Ulaganathan, Bronwyn Hajek, Reinhard Miller, David Beattie, Marta KrasowskaThe existing literature on the rise velocities of air bubbles in aqueous surfactant solutions adsorbing at the water-air interface focuses mainly on large bubbles (D > 1.2 mm)....

Diversity of self-propulsion speeds reduces motility-induced clustering in confined active matter

Soft Matter, 2021, Accepted ManuscriptDOI: 10.1039/D1SM01009C, PaperPablo de Castro, Francisco M. Rocha, Saulo Diles, Rodrigo Soto, Peter SollichSelf-propelled swimmers such as bacteria agglomerate into clusters as a result of their persistent motion. In 1D, those clusters do not coalesce macroscopically and the stationary cluster size distribution...

Preparation of a Novel Magnetorheological Fluid for High Temperature

Soft Matter, 2021, Accepted ManuscriptDOI: 10.1039/D1SM01018B, PaperHaopeng Li, Fei Chen, Mengmeng Han, Aimin Li, Zuzhi Tian, Xiangfan WuMagnetorheological fluids, especially those in high-power magnetorheological devices, inevitably work at high temperatures because of the wall slip, energized coils and frictions between particles. In order to prepare...

Square-triangle tilings : An infinite playground for soft matter

Soft Matter, 2021, Accepted ManuscriptDOI: 10.1039/D1SM01242H, PaperMarianne Impéror-Clerc, Anuradha Jagannathan, Pavel Kalugin, Jean-Francois SadocRegular square and triangle, two very simple geometrical figures, can be used to construct a fascinating variety of tilings which cover the 2D plane without any overlaps or holes. Such...The content of this...

Micro- and nanocelluloses from non-wood waste sources; processes and use in industrial applications

Soft Matter, 2021, Accepted ManuscriptDOI: 10.1039/D1SM00958C, Review Article Open Access   This article is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 Unported Licence.Julius Grondahl, Kaisa Karisalmi, Jaana VapaavuoriIn addition to renewability and abundance, nanocellulose materials have tremendous (and variable) properties for...

Photochromic and photothermal hydrogel derived from natural amino acid and heteropoly acid

Soft Matter, 2021, Accepted ManuscriptDOI: 10.1039/D1SM01272J, PaperXue Wang, Xiaohuan Liu, Zhiyuan Ma, Chuanling Mu, Wen LiA new kind of supramolecular hydrogels have been designed and synthesized via the co-assembly of basic amino acids (AAs) and heteropoly acids (HPAs) under acidic condition. The formation of gel-like...The content of this RSS Feed...

Self-assembly of chiral foldamers with alternating hydrophilic and hydrophobic side chains into acid-sensitive and solvent-exchangeable vesicular particles

Soft Matter, 2021, Accepted ManuscriptDOI: 10.1039/D1SM01321A, PaperZhiqiang Zhao, Bian Zheng, Yu Chen, Zhigang Xie, Chuanqing Kang, Lianxun Gao, Zhu GuangshanIt is difficult for the same molecule to self-assemble into stable vesicular particles in water and aliphatic hydrocarbon (oil), respectively. Here we demonstrated that chiral oligo(methylene-p-phenyleneethynylene)s...

Quantitative insights into tightly and loosely bound water in hydration shells of amino acids

Soft Matter, 2021, Accepted ManuscriptDOI: 10.1039/D1SM01234G, PaperYutan Shen, Lu Liu, Qiancheng Zheng, Xi Zhao, Yuchun Han, Qianjin Guo, Yilin WangThe hydration of amino acids closely correlates the hydration of peptides and proteins and is critical to their biological functions. However, complete and quantitative understanding about the hydration...

Effects of structural modification of (alkyldiene-imidazolium bromide)-based gemini monomers on the formation of the lyotropic bicontinuous cubic phase

Soft Matter, 2021, Advance ArticleDOI: 10.1039/D1SM01100F, CommunicationPatrick Li, Maria I. Reinhardt, Samantha S. Dyer, Kara E. Moore, Omar Q. Imran, Douglas L. GinSeven homologues of an amphiphilic gemini monomer were synthesized; and four of them (highlighted in red in the table) were found to form a bicontinuous cubic (Q) phase with glycerol or...

Atomistic Simulation of Volumetric Properties of Epoxy Networks: Effect of Monomer Length

Soft Matter, 2021, Accepted ManuscriptDOI: 10.1039/D1SM01128F, PaperKetan S. Khare, Cameron F AbramsProperties of epoxy thermosets can be varied broadly to suit design requirements by altering the chemistry of the component agents. Atomistically-detailed molecular dynamics simulations are well-suited for molecular insight into...The content of this...
