Soft Materials

This series in Nano Convergence focuses on soft materials and their developing applications. We cover polymers, gels, colloids and emulsions. Our focus is on understanding the properties of soft materials, and developing new class of applications based on their properties. Hybridized soft materials with nanocomposites and supramolecular nanoparticle will be reported as a material. Actuators and sensors based on dynamic properties of soft materials like stimuli-responsive properties, self-healing properties and so on will be included as an application.
