Chemist works with smart materials

Abstract:
In the same way that the body naturally heals cuts, some so-called "smart materials" are able to fill their own cracks. Concordia chemist Philippe G. Merle has been researching these materials, originally developed for use in space satellites, for several years to try to improve them. Now he has been awarded a grant from NanoQuébec, a provincial agency that funds nanotechnology research, to use the same technology in a new application: paint.
