Self-healing and self-mendable polymers

Author affiliations


Smart materials with the ability to repair themselves have been the focus of different fields of science and engineering. This mini-review provides an insight into the rapidly expanding area of research into smart materials with self-healing properties and also discusses both chemical (reversible and polymeric) and non-chemical (irreversible and microvascular) systems, with emphasis focused on the recent reports in the field.
