CHAPTER 5

Intrinsic Self-Healing Polymeric Materials for Engineering and Environmental Applications

This chapter describes recent advances on intrinsic self-healing polymeric materials for engineering and environmental applications and unveils their corresponding self-healing mechanisms. Ongoing efforts on employing the self-healing concept to various material properties and the emulation of natural materials would facilitate the development of more sophisticated and advanced self-healing systems with a wide range of applications.
