A show of force: Novel polymer that toughens up and changes color upon mechanical stress

04-Feb-2021

A fascinating and crucial ability of biological tissue, such as muscle, is self-healing and self-strengthening in response to damage caused by external forces. Most human-made polymers, on the other hand, break irreversibly under enough mechanical stress, which makes them less useful for certain ...
