Self-Healing Polymers: From Principles to Applications
Click here for more information.
This self-contained reference, written by a team of renowned international authors adopt a didactical approach to systematically cover all important aspects of designing self-healing polymers from concepts to applications - transferring lessons learnt from nature to materials science.
It is the first to discuss the chemical and physical concepts for self-healing polymers, including aspects of biomimetic processes of healing in nature and tissue regeneration.
Chapters cover the design of self-healing polymers and explain the dynamics in these systems.
Different self-healing concepts such as encapsulated systems and supramolecular systems are also included, with analysis and friction detection in self-healing polymers and on applications rounding off the whole.
