Temperature Dependence of the Pitch in Chiral Lyotropic Chromonic Liquid Crystals
Soft Matter, 2018, Accepted Manuscript DOI: 10.1039/C8SM02091D, PaperTimothy Ogolla, Robert S. Paley, Peter J. Collings One of the most simple cases in which chirality at the microscopic level produces a chiral macroscopic structure is the chiral nematic liquid crystal phase. In such a phase, the...

Strain Rate Dependent Nanostructure of Hydrogels with Reversible Hydrophobic Associations During Uniaxial Extension
Soft Matter, 2018, Accepted Manuscript DOI: 10.1039/C8SM02165A, PaperChao Wang, Clinton G Wiener, Masafumi Fukuto, Ruipeng Li, Kevin G. Yager, Robert Weiss, Bryan D Vogt An energy dissipation mechanism during deformation is required to impart toughness to hydrogels. Here we describe how in situ small angle x-ray scattering (SAXS) provides insight into possible energy dissipation...
