KEY TOPICS

The key to the strength of many materials found in nature is the optimized complex architecture of their nanoscale to macroscale components. [1] "One of the biggest challenges in the field of materials science is to realize the potential of nanoscale building blocks into macroscale materials." [1]

Atomically thin nanowires convert heat to electricity more efficiently Waste heat can be converted to electricity more efficiently using one-dimensional nanoscale materials as thin as an atom - ushering a new way of gener. [2] KTH reported that the process "can also be used to control nanoscale assembly of carbon tubes and other nano-sized fibers." [3]

Non layered nanoparticles can be used for polymer modification, it can be considered as a significant tier of organic- inorganic hybrid materials where inorganic nanoscale building blocks are incorporated uniformly in an organic polymer matrix. [4] Compared to conventional composite materials based on micrometer fillers at the interface the nanoscale filler particles provide greater surface area therefore enhancing the properties of the composites. [4]

A team at Cornell University has developed an innovative way to make batteries with three-dimensionality on a nanoscale. [5] Armed with such nanoscale insights, Tasan is devising better ways to repair existing metals. [6]

Better understanding of materials at the nanoscale is explaining many apparently odd things. [7] The composite structures of the LYMB shell, the EGF-LYMB shell, and the EGF-LYMB shell on a dressing were observable by SEM, which indicated the presence of nanoscale particles after coating with EGF. Figure  5E indicates that the LYMBs interacted and integrated well with the surrounding fibers after being added to the dressing. [8] One of the main challenges in the design of scaffolds for bone tissue engineering applications is the incorporation of a micro- and nanoscale dimensional hierarchy representative of native bone. [9]

May 21, 2018 - The findings were reported in "An autonomously electrically self-healing liquid metal-elastomer composite for robust soft-matter robotics and electronics", Nature Materials, DOI: 10.1038/s41563-018-0084-7. [10] The team's paper, An Autonomously Self-Healing, Liquid Metal-Elastomer Composite for Robust Soft-Matter Electronics, has been published in the journal Nature Materials. [10]

The first major trial of self-healing concrete in the UK. in motion reactions that repair the concrete autonomously without the need for human intervention. [10] May 17, 2018 - Self-healing materials are synthetically manufactured products that can automatically and autonomously heal or repair the damages without any external intervention or human interference. [10]

Self-healing and the sense of touch are two human abilities that, if replicated in robots, would go a long way into making them more sensitive. [10] A new self-healing smart material is in the making at Switzerland's Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL). [10] While recent advances in self-healing are exciting, "the long-term performance of autonomously healed polymers has largely remained unexamined," said Prof Arruda and Mr Zhao. [10] Perhaps the most recognizable manifestation is self-healing -- inspired by biological healing and realized in structural polymers and composites," said the White. [10] "The unprecedented level of functionality of our self-healing material can enable soft-matter electronics and machines to exhibit the extraordinary resilience of soft biological tissue and organisms." [10] This autonomously self-healing material is a breakthrough for soft-matter electronics. [10] "These self-healing materials and intelligent structures will significantly enhance. [10]

Self-healing concrete can make structures such as roads and bridges more durable. [11] An electrically conductive hydrogel that takes stretchability, self-healing and strain sensitivity to new limits has been developed at KAUST. "Our material outperforms all previously reported hydrogels and introduces new. [12] For soft-bodied, self-healing robots that emerge from the CMU Lab I suspect there will be numerous applications including using the soft elastomers to create human-machine interfaces, to develop new biomedical prostheses, to marry soft robot systems with conventional microelectronics for use in all kinds of industrial applications, and to help humans in their efforts to conquer space and even live on Mars. [13] May 23, 2018 At the Integrated Soft Material Laboratory located at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Pittsburgh, soft robots are emerging that contain self-healing material capable of spontaneous repair whether a surface or an electric circuit. [13] Carmel Majidi, an associate professor of mechanical engineering at the university, said, "The unprecedented level of functionality of our self-healing material can enable soft-matter electronics and machines to exhibit the extraordinary resilience of soft biological tissue and organisms." [3] MatSE faculty and students at the University of Illinois are making significant discoveries that will change the world, including self-healing materials such as polymer coatings that protect materials from the effects of environmental exposure. [14] In April 2010 Tedim received a Post-Doctoral FCT fellowship (SFRH/BPD/64335/2009) to develop his work further on self-healing coatings for corrosion protection. [15]

Self-healing material a breakthrough for bio-inspired robotics Pittsburgh PA (SPX) Jun 12, 2018 Many natural organisms have the ability to repair themselves. [16]

Monomer and polymer synthesis, covalent adaptable networks, self-healing materials, stimuli-responsive polymers, and polymer photochemistry. [17] The same incredibly strong atomic bonds that make metals so durable also rule out the usefulness of self-healing concepts effective for polymers. [6] An electrically conductive hydrogel that takes stretchability, self-healing and strain sensitivity to new limits has been developed at KAUST. "Our material outperforms all previously reported hydrogels and introduces new functionalities," says Husam Alshareef, professor of materials science and engineering. [18] "The field of self-healing in bulk metallic materials is in a rather early childhood stage," notes a recent textbook co-authored by Tasan. [6]
