Overview

A broad and comprehensive look at stimuli-responsive materials, methods, and applications as well as the novel methodologies and strategies adopted in R&D and commercial industry

The development of finely tuned materials that adjust in a predictable manner to specific environmental change is a rapidly growing multidisciplinary area of materials research with huge commercial potential. Stimuli-responsive materials adjust to small changes in their environment with a considerable change in their properties. Responsive materials are becoming increasingly more prevalent as scientists learn about their chemistry and the triggers that induce conformational change in material structures and devise ways of taking advantage of and controlling them. Responsive Materials and Methods offers a set of state-of-the-art chapters by renowned international researchers on these stimuli-responsive materials and their potential applications.

This groundbreaking first volume in a new series on advanced materials tackles such subjects as:

  • Smart wearable systems
  • Thermo-responsive smart biomaterials
  • Conducting polymer nanofibers
  • Cyclodextrin-based advanced responsive materials
  • Thermoplastic catalyst systems
  • Smart functional nanomaterials
  • Responsive adjuvants and carriers for antigen delivery
  • Innovative approaches to responsive nanostructured materials for cancer therapy
  • Responsive redox biopolymers
  • Smart nanomaterial applications to space and energy

Readership
The reference volume will be invaluable to a wide range of scientists, researchers, and clinicians including chemists, physicists, biotechnologists, materials scientists, pharmacists, and biomedical engineers, as well as industrial sectors involved in the production of advanced functional materials.
