Abstract

In this paper, we propose a method for self-assembly of polymer gel components under agitation by shaking. Polymer gel components were synthesized from anionic and cationic monomers. In order to assemble gel components automatically, we utilized the electrostatic interaction between the cationic and anionic gels with an external disturbance. We succeeded in demonstrating selective adhesion and precise positioning of the gel components through the design of gel component shape.
