Preparing polysiloxane-ether-urethane-acrylic hybrid emulsions

Polysiloxane-ether-urethane-acrylic hybrid emulsions were prepared by introducing different polydimethylsiloxane content into the acrylic-terminated backbone and then in situ copolymerising with methylmethacrylate and butylacrylate via emulsion process.

Bioinspired photocontrollable microstructured transport device

Adhesive mechanisms in the natural world, as used by geckos when they walk upside down on the ceiling, have many advantages: They are always strongly adhesive - without any glues or residues. Scientists are researching how these mechanisms can be artificially created.

Probing ways to turn cement’s weakness to strength

Concrete isn’t thought of as a plastic, but plasticity at small scales boosts concrete’s utility as the world’s most-used material by letting it constantly adjust to stress, decades and sometimes even centuries after hardening. Researchers are a step closer to understanding why.
