Title: Microfluidic fabrication of smart microgels from macromolecular precursors

Authors: Sebastian Seiffert*, David A. Weitz

Summary

Gels can be used as responsive systems for many applications. By using microgels, particles with various functionalities and sensitivities including drastic size change under certain conditions or multiple-functionalities (Janus particles) can be fabricated. By using a microfluidic device along with precursor polymers which consist of multiple polymeric units and contain the desired functionalities, different types of microgels can be fabricated.
