Composites evolution: The ­greatest change is yet to come

Abstract:
While today's composites owe much to polymers, it has become clear that nanotechnology could shape the industry's long-term future. Nanoscale constructions are already showing promise, particularly in electrical conductivity, tensile strength, isotropic or anisotropic properties and shock and vibration resistance. Additionally, "smart" materials are being developed that can sense their environment and adjust their properties accordingly. But nano research, which offers the opportunity to reconstruct materials an atom and an electron at a time, promises much more. At the nanoscale, the distinctions between medical, biology, physics, chemistry and material sciences disciplines blur; a new field of science will emerge to create composites with phenomenal physical characteristics. Synthesis of materials that are compatible with living tissue is just one possibility.
