Nanoparticles and liquid crystals: the effects of size, shape, shear, surface chemistry, temperature, and concentration on structure and rheology
thesisposted on 11.06.2020 by Joshua Brandyn Marlow
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
Nanoparticles and liquid crystals are both materials with a wide array of uses in applications such as drug delivery, biomedical devices, and coatings. This thesis examines how mixtures of these two substances can be tailored for these uses by changing the properties of either component.
