Facile approach to generating polymeric nanoarrays containing populations of nanoparticles (2015)
Journal Article
Marques, L., Chen, X., Roberts, C. J., Clark, M., & Aylott, J. W. (2015). Facile approach to generating polymeric nanoarrays containing populations of nanoparticles. Micro and Nano Letters, 10(8), 378-383. doi:10.1049/mnl.2015.0041

The production of nanoarrays containing a population of entrapped, heterogeneous nanoparticles is reported. The nanoarray consists of a nanoporous film with pores of diameter 60-180 nm, formed from the phase separation of two immiscible polymers: pol... Read More

Polymers with hydro-responsive topography identified using high throughput AFM of an acrylate microarray (2011)
Journal Article
Hook, A. L., Yang, J., Chen, X., Roberts, C. J., Mei, Y., Anderson, D. G., …Davies, M. C. (2011). Polymers with hydro-responsive topography identified using high throughput AFM of an acrylate microarray. Soft Matter, 7, doi:10.1039/c1sm06063e. ISSN 1744-683X

Atomic force microscopy has been applied to an acrylate polymer microarray to achieve a full topographic characterisation. This process discovered a small number of hydro-responsive materials created from monomers with disparate hydrophilicities that... Read More
