Chemical physical characterization of self-healing elastomeric "vitrimers"

Line of research
Bonds that can undergo reversible cleavage and reformation have gained significant interest in polymer networks. Polymeric materials with dynamic linkages can show thermoset-like superior mechanical properties along with thermoplastic-like reprocess and recycleability. The dynamic nature of these bonds can introduce unique properties such as self-healing, stress relaxation, degradability, malleability, shape memory, and adaptability in materials.
