Platinum nanoparticles, which are used as catalysts in Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFC), tend to degrade after long-term operation. We discriminate the following mechanisms of the degradation: poisoning, migration and coalescence, dissolution, and electrochemical Ostwald ripening. There are two ways to tackle this problem. The first...

Sol-gel technology is increasingly being used in coatings for corrosion protection and adhesion improvement. So far, the self-healing concept in sol-gel coatings has only been approached from extrinsic healing perspective (i.e. use of nano and micro carriers of corrosion inhibitors) [1]. Despite the benefits of this approach, the damaged area...

One of the most broadly reported self-healing schemes is that pioneered by White and Sottos et al. in which a polymer matrix is co-embedded with a catalyst and microcapsules containing a reactive healing agent. Although this field has been steadily growing over the past 10 years, little discussion of extension into biomaterials has taken place...

Self-assembled systems formed of micelles or vesicles have frequently been discussed as model systems for self-healing materials because their structure is dictated by thermodynamics and hence they quickly restore upon perturbation. In this aspect, they mimic many natural systems such as biological cells. However, in contrast to most synthetic...

Advances in the study of composite polymeric materials for structural applications have suggested the possibility of an early elimination of cracks to avoid macroscopic damage of the material. Hence, the concept of self-healing composite materials has been introduced to reduce the maintenance cost and frequency, to increase the life in service...

Concrete constructions in the marine environment suffer from chemical attack of sea salts which can induce damage to both the concrete matrix and embedded steel reinforcement. For example, ingress of sulfate and chloride ions can respectively result in detrimental ettringite formation and enhanced corrosion of the steel rebars. The first...

Poly (urea-formaldehyde) (PUF) shelled dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) microcapsules were prepared by in-situ polymerization technology for self-healing concrete applications. It’s found, during the process, sodium dodecyl benzene sulfonate (SDBS) behaves better in emulsification of DCPD than other surfactant of sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and styrene...

In this paper, different mechanisms of self-healing, i.e. self-healing based on adhesive agents, self-healing based on bacteria, self-healing based on autogenous self-healing were described. Their required conditions were summarized. The previous investigations showed that all mechanisms of self-healing are effective to some extend under...

Steels are among the most widely used construction materials as their mechanical properties can be tuned over a very wide range of desired combinations of strength formability and other properties. However, when exposed for long times to high temperatures steel components can exhibit premature and low-ductility creep fracture, which arises from...

The microcapsules of epoxy E-51 resin encapsulated by cured itself were prepared by interfacial curing reaction, in which ethylenediamine (EDA) was employed as curing agent and sulfonated copolymer of styrene and maleic anhydride (SMA) as emulsifying agent. It’s found the morphology of microcapsules strongly depend on reaction time and EDA...

Creation of an ideal self-healing polymer composite material with durable performance could become an alternative to traditional improvement of lightweight constructions. A vascular strategy of the self-healing of the epoxy materials is based on healing agent (HA) delivery to the damage via system of channels formed in the material. The aim of...

A functional experimental concrete system has been developed in our lab, in which a two component bacteria-based healing agent contained in a protective reservoir is included in the concrete mixture. Incorporated bacteria have the potential to produce copious amounts of calcium carbonate based crystals from supplied mineral precursor compounds....
