      Polymer molecules induce reversible phase transitions involving gas, liquid and solid-like states. We find that the phase diagrams can have two distinct topologies: fluid-solid only or fluid-solid plus fluid-fluid equilibria. The preference for one topology is governed by the ratio δ/σ, where δ and σ are the polymer and colloidal particle. Book description. The Encyclopedia of Surface and Colloid Science.

The phase transition of the thermoreversible polymer PNIPAM, which shows a coil-to-globule transition due to the lower critical solution temperature (LCST) behavior in aqueous solution, is investigated in the restricted geometry of an adsorption layer. Furthermore, a charged copolymer is studied to investigate the influence of charges on the phase transition.

Both polymers are adsorbed. Rotator-to-Lamellar Phase Transition in Janus Colloids Driven by Pressure Anisotropy Article in Physical Review Letters (12) September with 15 Reads How we measure 'reads'. The dielectric properties of composite materials prepared by the embedding of ferroelectrics potassium dihydrogen phosphate (KDP), cesium dihydrophosphate (CDP), as well as antiferroelectric ammonium dihydrogen phosphate (ADP) into porous glass matrices with an average size of through pores of 7, 46, and nm have been studied.

It was found that an increase occurred in the phase transitions. As a polymer, their swelling is affected by the solvent quality, and microgels can present volume phase transitions, i.e., a microgel-to-colloid transition, depending on external stimuli 3,4.

phase diagram is a straightforward crystal–fluid equilibrium, but the complementary techniques of microscopy and computer simu-lation have led to advances in the understanding of this phase transition.

This also aids the interpretation of the same mechanism in less straightforward systems. Colloid–polymer systems. The present studies of colloid–polymer mixtures in quasi-two-dimensional systems include: the density profiles of colloids and polymers across the gap, the phase diagrams for different polymer-to-colloid size ratios, q, the threshold value of q for liquid–liquid phase separation, and the effects of system size and polymer chain length.

The density profiles of colloids and polymers are. In the following we use the 2d-Ising model in the geometry of a very long and narrow stripe of length L and width D, L ≫ D, which already captures the essential physics of more complex systems like e.g.

a mixture of colloids and polymers in microscopic pores, or noble gases in nanoscopic confinement. Choosing a polymer to colloid size ratio of q= and studying ultrathin films in the range of D=3 to D=10 colloid diameters thickness, grand canonical Monte Carlo methods are used; phase.

The paper is devoted to the study of the size- and pressure- related effects on the phase transition temperature. The paper is organised well and will be interrsting to the readers of the Crystals journal.

Authors demonstrate non-monotonic increase of the Tc with decrease of the pore size.

Abstract. So far we have considered the phase behaviour of colloidal spheres plus depletants. In Chap. 3 we considered the simplest type of depletant, the penetrable hard sphere. We then extended this treatment in Chap. 4 to ideal and excluded volume polymers and in Chap. 5 we considered small colloidal spheres (including micelles) and colloidal rods as depletants.

interactions are a model system for understanding phase transitions. These colloids can form crystals and other phases of matter seen in atomic and molecular systems, but because the particles are large enough to be seen under an optical microscope, the microscopic mechanisms of phase transitions can be directly observed.

This article presents two examples of the application of spin resonance in investigations of polymers at interfaces, employing polymer-coated colloids: Applying 1H liquid-state NMR to monitor segmental mobility, the phase transition of the ther-moreversible polymer poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) is investigated in the restricted geometry of an.Classification.

Because the size of the dispersed phase may be difficult to measure, and because colloids have the appearance of solutions, colloids are sometimes identified and characterized by their physico-chemical and transport example, if a colloid consists of a solid phase dispersed in a liquid, the solid particles will not diffuse through a membrane, whereas with a true.

Here, we note that the geometry of the colloids determines the cluster topology: employing colloids with smooth patches larger than the rough seed particles as shown in Fig. 1B leads at increasing polymer concentration first to small clusters of n = 1 to n = 4 colloids, see panel below ρ p (r p = nm) = ρ overlap in Fig.
