Polymers and soft materials news, July 2018

Green light for polymer material that can change from hard to soft and back again

A novel polymer material can change its structure in response to light, converting from a rigid substance to a softer one that can heal itself.

Longer-lasting human skin equivalent alternative based on silk-collagen composite.

Researchers have developed a way to fabricate soft, porous materials via the self-assembly of metal-organic polyhedra made of rhodium atoms.

Custom-built parylene deposition system for a field-effect transistor.

Join the Mendeley group for further discussion.

Professor Cyrille Boyer was awarded two awards at MACRO2018 in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the field of polymer science.

By mixing and matching different materials, researchers have created a window coating that can prevent excessive heating and generate electricity.

Researchers have discovered that entangled, long-chain polymers in solutions relax at two different rates after processing.

Using a novel coating process, scientists have been able to develop a highly effective water-repellent coating based on a short-chain polymer.

Elsevier's extended Materials Today family also delivered very strong results.
