Moderate conformational transition promotes the formation of a self-reinforced highly oriented silk fibroin network structure
Soft Matter, 2021, Accepted Manuscript DOI: 10.1039/D1SM01120K, PaperTing Shu, Jing Cui, Zhuochen Lv, Leitao Cao, Jing Ren, Shengjie Ling Highly oriented molecular network structure (HOMNS) is a common and favorable design in natural and regenerated silks to achieve self-reinforcement of the material. However, the fundamental issues related to the... The content of this RSS Feed (c) The Royal Society of Chemistry (Source: RSC - Soft Matter latest articles)

Machine Learning Real Space Microstructure Characteristics from Scattering Data
This article is licensed under aCreative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported Licence.Matthew Jones, Nigel Clarke Using tools from morphological image analysis, we characterise spinodal decomposition microstructures by their Minkowski functionals, and search for a correlation between them and data from scattering experiments. To do this,... The content of this RSS Feed (c) The Royal Society of Chemistry (Source: RSC - Soft Matter latest articles)
