Scientists used NIPAM-based nanogels synthesised with different percentages of MBA (N,N'-methylenebisacrylamide) as a cross-linker in the range 10-30%, and characterised them at human physiological temperature. Detailed structural studies of these systems on a molecular length scale have not been attempted before now.
Researchers are trying to figure out the rules that govern metallic glass's creation. They are doing this by looking at metallic glasses under extreme pressures. High-pressure research can be used to probe structure on an atomic level and understand a material's state of order or disorder.
