Hybrid polymer heralds advance in self-repairing materials [Registered]

“We have created a surprising new polymer with nano-sized compartments that can be removed and chemically regenerated multiple times,” says the lead researcher Samuel Stupp. “Some of the nanoscale compartments contain rigid conventional polymers, but others contain the so-called supramolecular polymers, which can respond rapidly to stimuli…
