Responsive core/shell microparticles are used for the production of macroscopic materials such as films, fibers, and gels. Both aqueous and tetrahydrofuran gels are formed. By cross-linking of the particles, the temperature responsiveness of the particles is translated to the aqueous gels, films, and fibers, making them shrink and swell. This is used for post-incorporation of nanoparticles that can be taken up from the surrounding solution during swelling.
