Layer-by-Layer assembly on stimuli-responsive microgels
Current Opinion in Colloids and Interface Science, 2008, 13(6), 403-412
From flat and rigid substrates to hard and rigid particles, the complexity of shape and size of templates have taken new dimensions with the advent of new class of soft nanomaterials obtained from more conventional polymeric structures. This review focuses mainly on the layer-by-layer assembly on soft and porous stimuli-responsive microgels with particular emphasis on recent advances and developments made in recent years.
