Highly tough and stretchable conducting polymer networks

Ref No: Sch-3259-16

Professor Oren A. Scherman and his team in the Melville Laboratory for Polymer Synthesis, Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge, have developed a new highly tough and stretchable polymer hydrogel material capable of self healing and exhibiting ionic conductivity, with unique flexibility in its molecular design. This could potentially enable a new generation of flexible electronics and innovative materials for biomedical applications.


In such a new and growing area, the possible applications are extremely varied, but may include:

·         Smart materials for wearable technology

·         New generations of medical devices such as insulin pumps

·         Wearable biosensors for recreational and medical applications

·         Biomedical implants such as artificial cartilage and skin

The team is now keen to discuss the potential for this material with interested commercial parties.
