Smart, Self-Healing Hydrogel
Bioengineers from the Jacobs School of Engineering at University of California, San Diego have developed a self-healing hydrogel that binds in seconds - as easily as Velcro - and forms a bond strong enough to withstand repeated stretching. The material has many potential applications, including medical sutures, targeted drug delivery, industrial sealants, and self-healing plastics.
