Thermoresponsive actuation enabled by permittivity switching in an electrostatically anisotropic hydrogel: Professor Takuzo Aida, Department of Chemistry and Biotechnology

The temperature-mediated modulation of anisotropic electrostatics in response to changes of electrostatic permittivity in a hydrogel consisting of cofacially oriented electrolyte nanosheets imparts the hydrogel with actuation properties.
