ami-uv-self-healing-polymer-sceneA team of researchers in the United States and Switzerland have┬ádeveloped a polymer-based material that can heal itself with the help of UV lighting. Metallo-supramolecular polymers are solid materials capable to become a supple liquid that fills crevasses and gaps left by scrapes and scratches once it is exposed to ultraviolet light for less than… »
