Self-healing Supramolecular Bioelastomers with Shape Memory Property as a Multifunctional Platform for Biomedical Applications via Modular Assembly--The Critical Progress made by Frontier Institute of Science and Technology of XJTU

    Mimicking native functional dynamics for traditional biomaterials such as thermoset elastomers is limited due to their lack of responsiveness to biological stimuli and difficulties to incorporate biofunctionalities. Furthermore, the mechanical fracture of traditional thermoset elastomers caused by irreversible covalent bond rupture would lead to their permanent loss of properties. To overcome these challenges, research Group represented by Guo Baolin of Center for Biomedical Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (CBERM) of Frontier Institute of Science and Technology designed a highly tunable supramolecular bioelastomer with self-healing and shape-memory properties, and further assembled this bioelastomer as a multifunctional platform via modular approach for a range of biomedical applications.
