In recent years there has been a surge of interest in actively moving polymers, materials which can change shape in response to specific stimuli, as they can be used in well-known technologies such as packaging materials, but also as smart textiles and promising biomedical applications such as artificial muscles. To date, there is currently no resource covering the full array of these interesting materials. Actively Moving Polymers will cover both shape-memory polymers (materials which can be deformed into a new temporary shape and recover their original shape) and shape-changing polymers (materials which change their shape as long as they are exposed to a stimulus, such as expansion or shrinking). The book explores both the fundamental mechanisms and applications of different systems including dual-shape polymers, shape-memory composites, water-triggered shape changes, thermally-induced shape-changing polymers and self-oscillating gels. Readers will gain a comprehensive overview of actively moving polymers from leading scientists in the field and through example applications inspiration for new product ideas. This book provides everything you need to know about actively moving polymers in one place.
