Nanorod composite can self-regenerate when damaged
02 December, 2013
Using a newly developed computational approach, a nanocomposite is designed that enables self-regeneration of the gel matrix when a significant portion of the material is severed. The cut instigates a "dynamic cascade" of cooperative events, leading to regrowth: nanorods congregate at the new interface and initiate atom transfer radical polymerisation with monomers and cross-linkers in the outer solution. The reaction propagates to form a new cross-linked gel, which can be tuned to resemble the uncut material.
