Designing the materials of the future

We visit the Institute of Molecular Science (ICMol) of the University of Valencia with José Jaime Baldoví, researcher and director of the 2D Smart Materials group.

Water is repelled by the leaf surface, and this repulsion is due to the combination of a microstructured surface formed by leaf cells,

The texture of food

Flavour and texture are two criteria currently used to accept or reject food. Texture is a concept with no clear definition when used in gastronomy. However, materials science can help us to develop objective procedures to measure the texture of foods, for the latter is
