The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research, "Both materials are strong thermosetting polymers, and the PHTs exhibited very high Young's moduli (up to similar to 14.0 gigapascals and up to 20 gigapascals when reinforced with surface-treated carbon nanotubes), excellent solvent resistance, and resistance to environmental stress cracking. However, both HDCNs and PHTs could be digested at low pH (
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "For example, when poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) diamine monomers were used to form HDCNs, elastic organogels formed that exhibited self-healing properties."
