Smart hydrogel coating creates ‘stick-slip’ control of capillary action

27 julio 2015

Coating the inside of glass microtubes with a polymer hydrogel material dramatically alters the way capillary forces draw water into the tiny structures, researchers have found. The discovery could provide a new way to control microfluidic systems, including popular lab-on-a-chip devices.img src=»http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/~4/2KHHgdH1DL8″ height=»1″ width=»1″ alt=»»/
