Soft Matter, 2019, Advance Article
DOI: 10.1039/C9SM01496A, Paper
Megan E. Szakasits, Keara T. Saud, Xiaoming Mao, Michael J. Solomon
We examine the effect of embedded active colloids on the linear viscoelastic moduli of colloidal gels. We find that the autonomous, out-of-equilibrium dynamics of active colloids incorporated into the colloidal network decreases gel elasticity.

The dynamical modes observed for a compound vesicle in a shear flow are represented on the nondimensional rotational vs. extensional strengths and exhibits swinging and new modes of intermediate tumbling swinging and oscillatory relaxation to tank treading.

Capturing droplets from a stream with a fibrous material is a well-known process, from coalescence filters to fog harvesting. The collection efficiency strongly depends on the drop distribution on the fibers, thus on their wetting properties.

DNA functionalization of colloidal particles via physisorption of azide-functionalized diblock copolymers

Soft Matter, 2019, 15,6930-6933

DNA-coated colloids are prepared simply by physical adsorption of azide-functionalized amphiphilic diblock copolymers onto hydrophobic inorganic particles, followed by strain-promoted azide–alkyne cycloaddition (SPAAC) reaction.

Stiffening and inelastic fluidization in vimentin intermediate filament networks

Soft Matter, 2019, 15,7127-7136
DOI: 10.1039/C9SM00590K, Paper
Anders Aufderhorst-Roberts, Gijsje H. Koenderink
Nonlinear shear rheology reveals that intermediate filaments balance two contradictory roles: mechanoprotection by stiffening and dynamic cellular processes through softening.
