J (Jasper) van der Gucht Projects by J van der Gucht Tough and smart: physically cross-linked double polymer networks Tough and smart: physically cross-linked double polymer networks - WUR Project Tough and smart: physically cross-linked double polymer networks... Hybrid Networks This project concerns a new class of hydrogels and hydromicrogels based on biomimetic protein polymers. The aim is to understand the multiscale static... How strong is a polyelectrolyte complex? If you mix a solution of positively charged polymers with negatively charged polymers, a polyelectrolyte complex is formed under the right conditions Metal Containing Complex Coacervate Core Micelles Complex coacervate core micelles (C3Ms) are nanostructures formed by mixing aqueous solutions of a polyion-neutral diblock copolymer and an oppositely... Microrheology of 2D-Actin networks Actin is a protein found in all eukaryotic cells; mainly it occurs as the major component in the cells’ cytoskeleton and cortex, also it... Multi-responsive reversible gels based on charge driven assembly Physical gels are interesting candidates for a multitude of applications, because physical gels are self-healing and responsive. Self-assembled double polymer networks: flow and fracture Double polymer networks consist of two independently cross-linked, water-filled polymer networks that are topologically interlocked. A mechanical... Drying of water borne coating: Spontaneous Inversion in Jammed Systems During drying of a water borne coating, the dispersed resin must form a continuous, water-resistant film.
