Smarter materials: Self-powered, homeostatic nanomaterial actively self-regulates in response to environmental change

Living organisms have developed sophisticated ways to maintain stability in a changing environment, withstanding fluctuations in temperature, pH, pressure, and the presence or absence of crucial molecules. The integration of similar features in artificial materials, however, has remained a challenge — until now.

Smarter Nanomaterials Based on Self-Assembly

Molecular self-assembly is the process by which molecules adopt a defined arrangement without guidance or management from an outside source. There are two types of self-assembly, intramolecular self-assembly and intermolecular self-assembly.  (via Molecular self-assembly - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
