Recent Findings from Y. Guan and Co-Authors Yields New Data on Applied Polymer Science (Dynamically Bonded Layer-by-Layer Films: Dynamic Properties and Applications)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Current study results on Applied Polymer Science have been published. According to news reporting from Tianjin, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Layer-by-layer (LBL) assembly, a simple but versatile method for thin film fabrication, has been widely employed to fabricate nanoengineered films with controlled composition and thickness. Dynamically bonded LBL films are films fabricated using dynamic bonds, that is, chemical bonds which can undergo reversible breaking and reformation usually under equilibrium conditions, as driving forces."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research, "Because of the reversible, dynamic nature of the dynamic bonds, these films exhibit various dynamic properties, ranging from a small scale movement of the polymer chains within the films (chain rearrangement), to a large scale movement of the chains, which results in film disintegration. Usually an external stimulus is used to trigger the response of a dynamic film."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Novel applications have been proposed by exploiting the dynamic properties of these films."
