Mechano-Responsive Single Crystals
Date & Time: Thursday 12th April, 2018 at 4.00 PM
Venue: SSCU AUDITORIUM
Crystal based mechano-responsive materials have received considerable attention over the last few years due to their importance as media for conversion of energy to mechanical work. Such actuating or mechanically responsive materials are candidates for future dynamically active elements in a broad range of devices . This talk will highlight the Concept of mechanical effects in the crystals, the structure property correlation of these ordered materials . Origin of these type mechanical responses can be directly related to inter molecular interactions present in their structures [3, 4] and variation in the mechanical response with their crystal packing is illustrating with few homologous organic crystals like Halogenated Benzene, di-Halogenated Phenols [2-5]. Finally I am concluding with some of their futuristic applications .
