Water-based alkyl ketene dimer ink for user-friendly patterning in paper microfluidics
May 2, 2020 0 Comments

We suggest the usage of water-based alkyl ketene dimer (AKD) ink for quick and user-friendly patterning of paper microfluidic units both manually or utilizing a cheap XY-plotter. The ink was produced by dissolving hydrophobic AKD in chloroform and emulsifying the answer in water. The emulsification was carried out in a heat water tub, which led …
