Reading through the supporting information, I had to chuckle at some of the phrasing that truly differentiates a 'Whitesides paper' from a normal chemist's jaunt. Here's some choice phrases:
"Ecoflex two-part platinum cure silicone rubber kits...purchased from Smooth-On, Inc."
"...we made aqueous solutions colored in the visible spectrum...by mixing and adjusting the relative proportions of gouache watercolor paints..."
"This chemistry is standard for commercially available glow sticks"
"Fluorescent solutions were created by dispensing approximately 2 mL of DayGlo paint...and diluting with 25 mL acetone"
Makes discussions of where you purchased your LAH and allyl bromide seem rather pedestrian, eh?
