Self-healing materials with high self-healing efficiency and excellent mechanical properties are desired for practical applications. Herein, imine-based epoxy composites enhanced by surface modified halloysite nanotubes (SiUr@HNTs) were fabricated. According to DSC curves, epoxy composites with 3 wt% of SiUr@HNTs have an excellent cure state. The addition of 3 wt% of SiUr@HNTs not only gives a certain fluidity to the composites to improve the self-healing performance (the tensile strength can restore to 7.10 MPa and the self-healing efficiency can reach 99.8%), but SiUr@HNTs can also be used as a mechanical enhancer to enhance the mechanical properties (the tensile strength increases from 5.16 MPa to 7.12 MPa). In addition, the epoxy composites can withstand large stretching and a weight of more than 400 g after ex situ self-healing. Besides, the epoxy composites have great thermal stability and solvent resistance. In general, this work proposed a method to improve the mechanical properties of self-healing materials, which is promising in the development of high-strength self-healing composite materials.

Abstract Polysaccharides are the most abundant naturally available carbohydrate polymers; composed of monosaccharide units covalently connected together. Chitosan is the most widely used polysaccharides because of its exceptional biocompatibility, mucoadhesion, and chemical versatility. However, it suffers from a few drawbacks, e.g. poor mechanical properties and antibacterial activity for biomedical applications. Blending chitosan with natural or synthetic polymers may not merely improve its ph...

The construction of a single polymer network with extreme stretchability, relatively high mechanical strength, and fast and facile autonomous room-temperature self-healing capability still remains a challenge. Herein, supramolecular polymer networks are fabricated by synergistically incorporating metal-ligand and hydrogen bonds in poly(propylene glycol) (PPG). The representative specimen, PPG-Im-MDA-1.5-0.25-Cu, shows a combination of notable mechanical properties involving an extreme stretching...

Abstract Polyacrylamide hydrogel with nickel nanoparticles (ferrogel) have received increasing attention because of their viability in magnetic biosensors, magnetic field sensitive transformers, field-assisted drug deliverers, strain sensors and wearable electronics etc. In traditional ferrogels, wear can destruct durability and magnetic sensitivity, which might make them inept for further functioning. In this work, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were incorporated into polyacrylamide hydrogel embedded ...

Abstract In this study, triptycene-based carboxylic acid (triptycene-2,3,6,7-tetracarboxylic acid) was synthesized for polycondensation with two amino compounds to ultimately form linear polyamides with different backbone structures. Characterizations, including nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, were performed to confirm the polycondensation, and the structural properties were determined. Sol...

Cationic polymers are one of the main classes of materials investigated against bacteria through the membrane-lysis mechanism. The cationic鈥揾ydrophobic balance, molecular structure and distribution of cationic and hydrophobic moieties of these polymers are known to have a major effect on the antimicrobial activity. We have synthesized cyclic poly(2-(dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate) (PDMAEMA) based copolymers with various components by the intra-chain click cyclization of 伪-alkyne-蠅-azido hetero...

Self-healing polymeric gels have drawn great attention due to their promising practical applications. However, self-healing gels usually suffer from poor mechanical strength and versatility, which greatly limits their practicality. Here, we designed poly(NIPAM-co-MAH-尾-CD-co-ZDA) gels (NIPAM = N-isopropylacrylamide, MAH-尾-CD = 尾-cyclodextrin grafted vinyl carboxyl acid groups, ZDA = zinc acrylate) via frontal polymerization (FP). Benefiting from the triple non-covalent interactions (carboxyl鈥揨n2...

Abstract Achieving the artificial supramolecular polymer with excellent low temperature self-healing capability has been a new topic of great significance in soft robotic actuators and smart coating. Nevertheless, the production of robust polymer with decent low temperature self-healing ability is severely impeded by its high crosslink density and low dynamic crosslink bond. Here, we report a design strategy that both low crosslink density and high dynamic crosslink bonds are introduced into pol...

Abstract Self-healing and self-repairing coatings are stimuli-responsive materials, which are of crucial importance in developing advanced smart systems. However, a few has been attempted to unveil the association between the microstructure and properties of self-healing organic coatings. Herein, silane coupled cellulose-functionalized halloysite nanotubes (HNT-C)/epoxy nanocomposite coatings showing vitrimer-like behavior were developed and their crosslinking, thermal, mechanical, and self-heal...
