Reflexive Polymers and Hydrogels - Understanding and Designing Fast Responsive Polymeric Systems (Hardcover): Nobuhiko Yui,... Reflexive Polymers and Hydrogels - Understanding and Designing Fast Responsive Polymeric Systems (Hardcover)
Nobuhiko Yui, Randall J. Mrsny, Kinam Park
R6,359 Discovery Miles 63 590 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Explains models from natural flash systems Discusses theoretical considerations of flash systems Presents approaches and procedures for designing synthetic flash systems Explores methods for preparing flash systems for specific applications The design of environment-sensitive devices for biomedical and pharmaceutical applications has improved significantly due to recent advances in smart polymer and hydrogel technology. Despite their capacity to carry out functions that previously were unobtainable, smart polymers and hydrogels tend to have painfully slow response times. On the other hand biological systems go through phase changes at an extremely fast rate. This book examines the natural systems that respond almost instantaneously to environmental stimuli, and thus gives the reader an understanding of the mechanisms that govern these responses. The book includes chapters on how to go about designing a synthetic "flash" system based on the naturally occurring systems. It also deals with potential applications of flash systems in biomedical and pharmaceutical areas.
