A Hybrid Polymer With Removable Compartments

A new kind of hybrid polymer could be used for self-repairing materials, drug delivery and artificial muscles. The polymer, developed¬†by¬†researchers at Northwestern University, features removable parts that can be regenerated. The study has been published in the journal Science. Our bodies use polymers to sustain cellular structures. For example, the cytoskeleton is made of fibers […]
