'Shape-shifting' material could help reconstruct faces
Injuries, birth defects (such as cleft palates) or surgery to remove a tumor can create gaps in bone that are too large to heal naturally. And when they occur in the head, face or jaw, these bone defects ...
The fix is in: Team studies self-healing polymers
(Phys.org) —A surfboard that seals its own cracks without having to cure in the sun for days. Underwater structures that can be fixed with less work and downtime. Joints that are almost instantly stronger ...
Materials scientists and mathematicians benefit from newly crafted polymers
For the first time, the synthesis of a multicyclic type of polymer provides insights for tailoring polymer properties as well as the mathematics of complex geometries.
