Smart Materials in Medicine

Smart Materials in Medicine is an international, peer-reviewed scientific journal covering all aspects of smart materials with applications in the fields of biotechnology, medicine and healthcare. The journal welcomes the submission of research papers, reviews and rapid communications.

Smart materials, also known as intelligent or responsive materials, are designed materials that have one or more properties that can be significantly changed in a controlled fashion by external stimuli, such as stress, temperature, moisture, pH, electric or magnetic fields, light, or chemical compounds. Appropriate submissions to Smart Materials in Medicine should include researches that provide novel scientific and/or engineering finding underlying the design, fabrication, processing, microstructure, properties and/or applications of smart materials, and reports that contribute to the body of knowledge by documenting the thinking, philosophy, and/or strategies of smart material sciences and engineering. Smart Materials in Medicine will cover all aspects of smart materials intended for biomedical applications. Typical smart materials include but are not limited to:

  • Chemoresponsive materials
  • Chromogenic materials
  • Dielectric elastomers
  • Electroactive polymers
  • Ferrofluid
  • Halochromic materials
  • Magnetocaloric materials
  • Materials with controlled release
  • Materials with controlled degradation
  • Photomechanical materials
  • Photovoltaic materials
  • pH-sensitive materials
  • Piezoelectric materials
  • Polycaprolactone
  • Self-healing materials
  • Shape-memory materials
  • Temperature-responsive materials
  • Thermoelectric materials
