Summary of "Preparation, characterization and properties of intrinsic self-healing elastomers."

Significant advances have been made in the development of self-healing synthetic polymer materials in recent years. This review article discusses the recent progress in preparation, characterization and properties of different kinds of intrinsic self-healing elastomers based on reversible covalent bonds and dynamic supramolecular chemistry. Healing conditions, mechanical property recovery and healing efficiency are the main discussion topics. Potential applications, challenges and future prospects in self-healing elastomer fields are also discussed in the last part of this review.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A generic term for all substances having the properties of stretching under tension, high tensile strength, retracting rapidly, and recovering their original dimensions fully. They are generally POLYMERS.

Polymers of silicone that are formed by crosslinking and treatment with amorphous silica to increase strength. They have properties similar to vulcanized natural rubber, in that they stretch under tension, retract rapidly, and fully recover to their original dimensions upon release. They are used in the encapsulation of surgical membranes and implants.

A preparation consisting of PLATELETS concentrated in a limited volume of PLASMA. This is used in various surgical tissue regeneration procedures where the GROWTH FACTORS in the platelets enhance wound healing and regeneration.

The study of the structure, preparation, properties, and reactions of carbon compounds. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed)

The genetic constitution of the individual; the characterization of the genes.
