  • Epstein, Irving R.; Vanag, Vladimir K.; Balazs, Anna C.; Kuksenok, Olga; Dayal, Pratyush; Bhattacharya, Amitabh (American Chemical Society, 2012-12)
    Evolution is a characteristic feature of living systems, and many fundamental processes in life, including the cell cycle, take place in a periodic fashion. From a chemistry perspective, these repeating phenomena suggest ...
  • Kuksenok, Olga; Dayal, Pratyush; Bhattacharya, Amitabh; Yashin, Victor V.; Deb, Debabrata; Chen, Irene C.; Vliet, Krystyn J. Van; Balazs, Anna C. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2013-02)
    Species ranging from single-cell organisms to social insects can undergo auto-chemotaxis, where the entities move towards a chemo-attractant that they themselves emit. Polymer gels undergoing the self-oscillating ...
  • Dayal, Pratyush; Kuksenok, Olga; Balazs, Anna C. (American Chemical Society, 2014-04)
    In the biological realm, light can act as a powerful stimulus, promoting both positive and negative phototaxis. Using computational modeling, we attempt to design systems that display analogous biomimetic behavior by ...
  • Amin, Shital; Padhiyar, Nitin; Dayal, Pratyush (Elsevier, 2018-05)
    Water-resistant amino resins have found diverse applications in the paint and coatings industry. Butylated Urea Formaldehyde (BUF) amino resins exhibit excellent water-resistant properties due to the presence of butyl ...
  • Deb, Debabrata; Kuksenok, Olga; Dayal, Pratyush; Balazs, Anna C. (RSC Publications, 2014)
    Using computational modeling, we show that millimeter-sized polymer gels undergoing the self-oscillating Belousov–Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction can spontaneously self-aggregate to form macroscopic, self-rotating pinwheels. ...
  • Kuksenok, Olga; Deb, Debabrata; Dayal, Pratyush; Balazs, Anna C. (Annual Reviews, 2014-02)
    Stimuli-responsive gels are vital components in the next generation of smart devices, which can sense and dynamically respond to changes in the local environment and thereby exhibit more autonomous functionality. We describe ...
  • Patel, Garima; Amin, Shital; Padhiyar, Nitin; Dayal, Pratyush (Elsevier, 2018-10)
    Butylated urea formaldehyde (BUF) is a key intermediate for manufacturing paint and coating. The quality of BUF resins can be measured in terms of the concentration of free formaldehyde in the BUF resins and the extent of ...
  • Xiong, Yao; Dayal, Pratyush; Balazs, Anna C.; Kuksenok, Olga (Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, 2018-03)
    Design of multifunctional materials often requires the chemical functionalization enabling the material to respond to a variety of stimuli. Herein, we focus on modeling of functionalized chemo‐responsive gels and composites; ...
  • Dayal, Pratyush; Balazs, Anna C.; Kuksenok, Olga (National Academy of Sciences, 2013-01)
    Using computational modeling, we show that self-oscillating Belousov–Zhabotinsky (BZ) gels can both emit and sense a chemical signal and thus drive neighboring gel pieces to spontaneously self-aggregate, so that the system ...
  • Kumar, D. Jaya Prasanna; Verma, Sachin; Jasuja, Kabeer; Dayal, Pratyush (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2019)
    The classic Belousov�Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction, which involves transition metal catalysed redox reactions, represents a family of nonlinear chemical oscillators. Here, we show that it is possible to tune the oscillatory ...
