When It Comes to Polymer-Grafted Nanoparticles, It’s All About the Flow
Polymer-grafted nanoparticles look like long chains of spaghetti, with ball-like attachments at the ends. These strange shapes have the potential to improve the design of high-performance materials. Polymer-grafted nanoparticles are the hope for next-generation materials used for everything from electrical energy storage to space travel. The U.S. Air Force has taken notice.
