Summary

This self-contained reference, written by a team of renowned international authors adopt a didactical approach to systematically cover all important aspects of designing self-healing polymers from concepts to applications - transferring lessons learnt from nature to materials science. 

It is the first to discuss the chemical and physical concepts for self-healing polymers, including aspects of biomimetic processes of healing in nature and tissue regeneration. 

Chapters cover the design of self-healing polymers and explain the dynamics in these systems.

Different self-healing concepts such as encapsulated systems and supramolecular systems are also included, with analysis and friction detection in self-healing polymers and on applications rounding off the whole.

Author Biography

Wolfgang H. Binder is Professor for Macromolecular Chemistry at the University of Halle, Germany. He received his PhD in Organic Chemistry in 1995 at the University of Vienna. In his post doc research at Emory University, USA, he specialized on colloidal chemistry/macromolecular chemistry. In 1997 he became an Assistant Professor at the Technical University of Vienna and in 2004 Associate Professor. His research is focused on tailored synthetic methods (living polymerization methods) and analytical polymer science, with applications in material science, nanotechnology and medicine; Wolfgang H. Binder has published over 120 scientific articles.
