Probing Gel Structure using Scattering – an Insight into Designing New Soft Materials
Dr Annela Seddon from University of Bristol, UK
In order to be able to design new soft materials, such as gels, understanding how they form is a critical first step. Bulk measurements, like rheology, provide excellent information on their properties, but understanding their structure can be more challenging. In this talk I will show how combining small angle x-ray and neutron scattering can give insight into gel formation and how seemingly subtle changes in the molecular chemistry of gelators can lead to sometimes unexpected new outcomes.
These lectures are free and can be attended via Zoom by to up to 100 attendees.
The lectures will be recorded as well, and (with permission of the presenter) will be made available online afterwards for a broader educational reach.
