Protruding polymer offers release

Abstract:
Researchers from the US have created smart nanocomposite films whose potential applications range from self cleaning sensors to fuel efficient transport.

Liming Dai at the University of Dayton, Ohio, and co-workers prepared composites of vertically aligned carbon nanotubes and a temperature responsive polymer. Above a critical temperature, the polymer chains exist in a collapsed conformation, and recede beneath the surface, then on cooling the chains expand and protrude from the surface.
