One important development in materials science is the design of smart materials, which can recognize environmental signals and respond to them by changing shape, color, conductivity, swelling etc. . A successful way to program such materials is to highly stretch them. We have developed the concept of cross-linking polymers at the borderline between thermoplast and elastomer to allow manipulations of the polymer chains under stress without time constrains due to relaxation and flowing. This way highly sensitive polymer systems could be achieved that can memorize environmental signals, such as chemical vapor concentrations, and that can even predict outcomes, such as overheating, and react to those accordingly. Also coupling such systems with thermo-reversible, mechanically stable and fast forming cross-links will be discussed.
