A new polymer stronger than bone

The first new class of polymers discovered in over 20 years by IBM researchers is the world’s first family of materials that are stronger than bone, self-healing and solvent-resistant while being completely recyclable back to their starting material. These new experimental polymers, coming by way of a novel ‘computational chemistry’ hybrid approach to accelerate the materials discovery process, could deliver cheaper, lighter, stronger and recyclable materials ideal for the semiconductor, aerospace, airline and automotive industries.
