Two Concordia researchers for the Oh Research Group in the Faculty of Arts and Science are looking at ways to self-heal your cellphone, and their research could have broader implications as well. Our goal is not to compromise the toughness of the network while adding dynamic ability to self-heal damage and scratches at just room temperature. This feature sets our research apart from others, said Twinkal Patel, Ph.D. candidate and first author of a research paper on the subject. The team created self-healing polymer networks through very simple synthetic routes. The developed materials demonstrated excellent results at room temperature.
