Product Description

From the Back Cover

Sets the foundation for the development of new smart materials with a broad range of industrial applications Inspired by nature, intelligent stimuli-responsive materials mimic how natural materials and systems respond to stimuli such as light, heat, and electric fields. With contributions from an international team of leading materials researchers and nanoscientists, this book enables readers to master the basic design principles and methods for developing intelligent stimuli-responsive materials. Moreover, the authors present the most promising strategies to overcome the many challenges in creating smart materials that provide the properties and characteristics needed for specific industrial applications. Intelligent Stimuli-Responsive Materials emphasizes nanostructures as the basic building blocks for industrial applications within a broad range of fields, including polymer science, materials science, organic chemistry, engineering, photonics, electronics, and green chemistry. Each chapter thoroughly examines a different stimuli-responsive material, addressing all the latest advances in design, analytical techniques, and applications. Topics focus on new and emerging developments in the field, including: Nature-inspired, stimuli-responsive, self-folding materials Stimuli-responsive nanostructures from self-assembly of rigid–flexible block molecules Photoresponsive, cholesteric liquid crystals Stimuli-responsive, hybrid, metal nanoparticles Biomimetic, self-oscillating polymer gels Stimuli-responsive surfaces in biomedical applications Filled with detailed examples, Intelligent Stimuli-Responsive Materials is ideal for students and researchers new to the field, introducing them to the diverse range of research and development activities around the world. Experienced researchers can turn to the book to discover the latest breakthroughs and perspectives, helping them develop their own approaches to solving current problems and designing new intelligent stimuli-responsive materials and applications.
