A stretchable polysiloxane elastomer with self-healing capacity at room temperature and solvatochromic properties

Abstract

A stretchable silicon elastomer comprising cobalt ions in pyridine pendant polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) was prepared. Different from previously reported cobalt-coordinated elastomers, these elastomers are self-healable at room temperature with a high healing efficiency of over 90%. Besides, they exhibit tailored solvatochromic properties over a wide range without sacrificing its self-healing ability at room-temperature.
