Abstract

Macroscopic regular stripe-crack patterns have been observed in the course of drying the aqueous suspensions of ammonium-modified polymer nanospheres. These forms emerged because the evaporation of dispersed water and self-assembly of nanospheres originates shrinkage during drying the aqueous suspensions. The drying condition plays an important role as well as the nature of the ammonium-modified polymer nanospheres for the stripe-crack pattern formation. By means of the vertical deposition method, directional stripe-crack patterns have been achieved in the macroscopic scale. Surprisingly, we have still noted an interesting secondary stripe pattern occurred spontaneously on the stripes.
