Chapter 3

Multi-stimuli Responsive Materials

Multi-stimuli responsive soft materials have shown great potential for selective drug delivery, logic gating and directional transport. Starting with a discussion of different stimuli-responsive elements, an overview of multi-stimuli responsive gels, thin films on surfaces and nanocarriers as three examples of typical materials is provided. The last part of the chapter discusses more sophisticated functions of these materials and provides a perspective for potential future developments.
