Reversible glue ‘de-bonds’ at the touch of a button

Abstract:
A new kind of superglue that uses nanoscale magnetic particles to bond and de-bond on command has been developed by German scientists. The addition of a magnetic additive by Andreas Hartwig at the Fraunhofer Institute, Munich, and colleagues at chemical company Degussa, Dusseldorf, Germany has produced an adhesive that bonds and de-bonds without having to heat the materials being stuck together.
