TREND: Current Trends in the Field of Self-Healing Materials

Nathalie K. Guimard, Kim K. Oehlenschlaeger, Jiawen Zhou, Stefan Hilf, Friedrich Georg Schmidt,* Christopher Barner-Kowollik*

The development of self-healing materials has become of increasing interest to material scientists in the last 20 years, given the extraordinary advantages that such systems offer in a wide range of applications. The design of an optimal self-healing material depends on many factors, including material application, stability, and production cost.
