Complex fluids or soft matter are fluids in which elementary molecules are constrained so that their degrees of freedom are reduced. When their degrees of freedom are reduced, the motion of elementary molecules is confined through intermolecular as well as intramolecular interaction. The extent to which the elementary molecules are constrained dictates their collective responses to the ambient and their mutual interaction, thereby leading to a wide spectrum of materials properties exhibited in complex fluids. It's been shown that the mesoscopic morphology and dynamics in complex fluids, given the fact that they are normally consisted of macromolecules, can impact their macroscopic property significantly.
