Abstract

original image

Magnetic personality: Magnetochromatic polydiacetylene has been prepared by the incorporation of superparamagnetic Fe3O4 nanoparticles into the polymer network. The composite nanomaterial changes color in a magnetic field through a ready and efficient self-assembly process.
