Advancing tissue engineering with shape memory hydrogels

One of the primary goals in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine is the development of artificial scaffolds that can serve as substitutes for damaged tissue. These materials must ideally resemble natural ...

Helical and striped arrangement of conducting polymers

Conductive polymers are also referred to as synthetic metals owing to their electrical conductivity. As precursors of conductive polymers, conjugated polymers are currently being developed as new optical materials to replace ...

Multicyclic molecular wheels with polymer potential

Rotaxanes are interlocked molecular structures with a linear 'axle' molecule penetrating one or more cyclic 'wheel' molecules. Bulky groups at the end of the axle prevent the wheels from coming off.
