Guimard, N. K., Oehlenschlaeger, K. K., Zhou, J., Hilf, S., Schmidt, F. G., & Barner-Kowollik, C. (2012) Current trends in the field of self-healing materials. Macromolecular Chemistry and Physics, 213(2).

The evolution of material design has mirrored advancements in the understanding of materials, nature, and the requirements of target applications. Originally, materials were only intended to play a passive role, but with a deepened understanding of material properties and design has come an improved ability to harness these properties to create materials with predetermined response mechanisms. This article has three aims: i) to briefly discuss the origin of and motivation for having materials that are capable of undergoing healing either extrinsically or intrinsically; ii) to present the most recent and promising advancements in the field of self-healing materials; and iii) to discuss important material design and property specifications that should be considered in order to promote the development of optimized self-healing materials. 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. Copyright © 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.

111 citations in Scopus
97 citations in Web of Science®
Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
