Polymer hydrogel changes shape when exposed to various solutions

03/25/2013 | Chemical & Engineering News

Scientists at the University of Maryland have developed a polymer hydrogel that can take on at least three shapes, depending on the triggering agent. The discovery could lead to the development of increasingly complex shape-shifting materials that might one day activate robotic devices or drug delivery systems.
