Carbon-Based Smart Materials

Funded by: Knowledge Unlatched
Edited by: Constantinos A. Charitidis, Elias P. Koumoulos and Dimitrios A. Dragatogiannis

Presents technologies and key concepts to produce suitable smart materials and intelligent structures for sensing, information and communication technology, biomedical applications (drug delivery, hyperthermia therapy), self-healing, flexible memories and construction technologies. Novel developments of environmental friendly, cost-effective and scalable production processes are discussed by experts in the field.

Smart materials react to changes in their environment, like compact, low-power sensors that can detect stimuli e.g. toxic chemicals, bio-hazards or radiation

Promising applications in the textile industry, biomedicine, construction technologies
