A Rapid and Efficient Self-Healing Thermo-Reversible Elastomer Crosslinked with Graphene Oxide

Authors


Abstract

A self-healing thermo-reversible elastomer is synthesized by cross-linking a hydrogen bonding polymer network with chemically-modified graphene oxide. This nanocomposite allows for both rapid and efficient self-healing (in only several minutes) at room temperature, without the need for any external stimuli (e.g., heating or light exposure), healing agents, plasticizers or solvents.
