Mechanochromic Polycarbonate work now out in JACS

Our study “Enabling Room-Temperature Mechanochromic Activation in a Glassy Polymer: Synthesis and Characterization of Spiropyran Polycarbonate” is now out in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. The manuscript was co-first authored by Yuval Vidavsky and Steven Yang and was in collaboration with the Coates group at Cornell and the Diesendruck group at the Technion. […]

New publication available in Advanced Functional Materials

Our latest collaborative paper with the Diesendruck group at the Technion is now out in Advanced Functional Materials.  “Highly Stretchable Polymers: Mechanical Properties Improvement by Balancing Intra- and Intermolecular  Interactions” was co-first authored by soon to defend MMD PhD candidate Suwon Bae and Diesendruck group PhD candidate Or Galant. In this work, Or and Suwon used a combination of […]

Non-woven modeling manuscript now out in IJSS

Check out Naigeng’s latest paper in the International Journal of Solids and Structures. In this work extending from the final chapter of his PhD dissertation, Naigeng presents a constitutive model for non-wovens that explicitly includes bond failure as a damage mechanism. This novel contribution to the field build’s on Naigeng’s early PhD work experimentally identifying […]

The Effect of Intrachain Cross-Linking for Glassy Polymers

Suwon Bae’s new paper is now out in Macromolecules. This manuscript presents his molecular dynamics simulations examining the thermo-mechanical behavior of glassy polymers assembled from single chain polymer nanoparticles. Suwon’s simulations showed surprisingly good agreement with our earlier experimental work on the same class of materials. This is our third paper in our ongoing collaboration […]

Yuval’s work on the Cover of the Journal of Polymer Science: Polymer Chemistry

Postdoc Yuval Vidavsky’s paper entitled Modulating Metallopolymer Mechanical Properties by Controlling Metal Ligand Crosslinking is featured as the cover article in the June issue of the Journal of Polymer Science: Polymer Chemistry. Yuval conceived, synthesized, and tested a series of polymers that can be reversibly crosslinked by addition and removal of copper cations, thereby tailoring the stiffness and […]

Medical Implant Paper out in PNAS

Our collaborative work with Minglin Ma’s group (Cornell Biological and Environmental Engineering) on a potential medical treatment for type 1 diabetes is now published in PNAS. The paper entitled “Designing a retrievable and scalable cell encapsulation device for potential treatment of type 1 diabetes” was led by Minglin’s PhD students Duo An and Alan Chiu. […]

Bond Strength Determination Manuscript

Naigeng’s work on determining bond strength within non-wovens is now published in Experimental Mechanics. In this meticulous combined experimental and computational effort Naigeng outlines and then validates a method for determining the bond strength distribution within non-wovens formed from fiber-fiber bonds. This method can be used as long as the non-woven can be imaged (e.g. […]
