Contributors: X. Sun n, P. Tyagi n, S. Agate n, L. Lucia n, M. McCord n & L. Pal n

author keywords: Poly(N-isopropylacrylamide); Cellulose nanocrystals; Hydrogels; Thermal responsive; Transparency
TL;DR: A hybrid materials system to modulate lower critical solution temperature (LCST) and moisture content for thermo-responsivity and optical tunability was strategically developed by incorporating cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) into a poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAm) hydrogel matrix.
