Abstract:

"Polymer-based smart materials have become attractive in recent years due to the fact that the polymers are flexible and provide many advantages compared to inorganic smart materials: they are low cost, they are easy to process, and they exhibit good performance at nano- and microscale. This new volume, Smart Materials: Integrated Design, Engineering Approaches, and Potential Applications, focuses on a different class of polymers that are used as smart materials in the areas of biotechnology, medicine, and engineering. The volume aims to answer these questions: How do we distinguish smart materials? and How do they works? The chapters lay the groundwork for assimilation and exploitation of this technological advancement. Four of the key aspects of the approach that we have developed throughout this book are highlighted, namely the multidisciplinary exchange of knowledge, exploration of the relationships between multiple scales and their different behaviors, understanding that materials properties are dictated at the smallest scale, and, therefore, the recognition that macro-scale behavior can be controlled by nano-scale design. The chapters analyze the experimental and theoretical aspects regarding the preparation, processing, designing, properties, and practical implications of advanced systems from macro- to nanoscales. The book also discusses recent advancements, research, and development prospects of smart materials that provide new solutions for advanced technologies. Many researchers working in this field will benefit from the fundamental concepts, advanced approaches, and application of the various smart materials in biotechnology explored here. The volume will also provide a platform for scientists and graduate students to perform advanced research."--Provided by publisher.
