[64] Dogyeong Ha, Sangjin Seo, Kyunghun Lee and Taesung Kim*, Dynamic Transport Control of Colloidal Particles by Repeatable Active Switching of Solute Gradients, ACS Nano, 2019 (IF = 13.903, Accepted)

<We developed a micro/nanofluidic diffusiophoresis platform (MNDP) by optimizing both cracking-assisted photolithography and modified-soft-lithography. It is possible to decouple the effect of EP and CP on the resulting DP of colloidal particles by generating stable and long-term concentration gradients in a transient or steady-state.We further demonstrated that the MNDP allows to actively switch the spatiotemporal concentration gradients, resulting in the separation and fractionation of nanoparticles.>

<we present a snake fang–inspired microneedle patch that can administer existing liquid formulations to patients in an ultrafast manner (<15 s). The microneedle patch uses multiple open groove architectures that emulate the grooved fangs of rear-fanged snakes: Similar to snake fangs, the microneedles can rapidly and efficiently deliver diverse liquid-phase drugs and vaccines in seconds under capillary action with only gentle thumb pressure, without requiring a complex pumping system.>

<we present a simple and versatile microfluidic approach for controlling two-dimensional liquid foam, designing not only evaporative microholes for directed drainage to generate desired film networks without topological changes for the first time, but also microposts to pin the generated films at set positions.>

<We demonstrated a novel 3D hierarchical patterned PDMS interlayer-integrated single-electrode TENG. The TENG had high flexibility and generated high electrical output upon excitation by tapping with a natural-rubber glove-covered hand. The TENG with a superhydrophobic interface could recover much faster than a TENG with a normal flat interface under the same wet conditions.>

<Micro-/nanofluidic liquid-mediated patterning (MNLP) methods enable well-defined precise patterning/structuring of various liquid-mediated materials such as liquid samples containing target materials as solutes, suspensions, and many other building blocks at the micro-/nanoscale. Therefore, MNLP confers many additional advantages in cost, labor, resolution, and throughput to liquid-processed patterning/structuring based on bottom-up approaches.>

< We propose a mathematical model of an artificial gill system describing the extraction and consumption of dissolved oxygen in water. The mathematical model provides engineering guides for an artificial gill system of which gas permeability, scaffold structure, and membrane morphology can be optimized to maximize oxygen extraction rates and carbon dioxide removal rates. We demonstrate a scaled-up artificial gill system for insects, making it possible for insects to breathe for 60 h in water.>
