New Hot article in Nanoscale

Congratulations to current and former group members Elaine Kelly, Judith Houston and Camille Blayo whose paper entitled A Single-Component Photorheological Fluid with Light-Responsive Viscosity has been published as a Hot Article in Nanoscale.

This paper reports an azobenzene photosurfactant, which at low concentrations in water, can reversibly switch between a high-viscosity, viscoelastic fluid and a watery, low-viscosity fluid, depending on the light irradiation conditions.

The work was carried out in collaboration with Nathan Cowieson at Diamond Light Source, Niamh Willis-Fox (also ex-group member) and Ronan Daly in the Institute for Manufacturing and Giorgio Divitini from the Electron Microscopy group in the department. Congratulations all!

A Single-Component Photorheological Fluid with Light-Responsive Viscosity, Elaine A. Kelly, Niamh Willis-Fox, Judith E. Houston, Camille Blayo, Giorgio Divitini, Nathan Cowieson, Ronan Daly and Rachel C. Evans, Nanoscale, 2020, 12, 6300 – 6306.
