Title: Smart polymeric materials:emerging biochemical applications
Authors: Roy, Ipsita

Keywords: Smart polymeric materials
Application of smart materials
Issue Date: 2003
Citation: Chemistry & Biology, 10(12), 1161-1171
Abstract: Smart polymeric materials respond with a considerable change in their properties to small changes in their environment. Environmental stimuli include temperature, pH, chemicals, and light. "Smart" stimuli-sensitive materials can be either synthetic or natural. This review discusses the application of smart materials as tools to solve biological problems such as bioseparation, drug delivery, biosensor design, tissue engineering, protein folding, and microfluidics. The goal for these endeavors is to mimic the "smartness" of biological systems and ultimately moderate complex systems such as immune responses at desired levels. The versatility and untapped potential of smart polymeric materials makes them one of the most exciting interfaces of chemistry and biology.
