  • Study reveals why polymer stents failed

    Study reveals why polymer stents failed0

    Many patients with heart disease have a metal stent implanted to keep their coronary artery open and prevent blood clotting that can lead to heart attacks. One drawback to these stents is that long-term use can eventually damage the artery. Several years ago, in hopes of overcoming that issue, a new type of stent made

  • Shape-shifting organic crystals use memory to improve plastic electronics

    Shape-shifting organic crystals use memory to improve plastic electronics0

    Researchers have identified a mechanism that triggers shape-memory phenomena in organic crystals used in plastic electronics. Shape-shifting structural materials are made with metal alloys, but the new generation of economical printable plastic electronics is poised to benefit from this phenomenon, too. Shape-memory materials science and plastic electronics technology, when merged, could open the door to

    Using DNA strands to design new polymer materials0

    McGill University researchers have chemically imprinted polymer particles with DNA strands – a technique that could lead to new materials for applications ranging from biomedicine to the promising field of “soft robotics.” In a study published in Nature Chemistry, the researchers describe a method to create asymmetrical polymer particles that bind together in a spatially defined
