Highly advanced materials in the field of electronic skin, solar fuels, skincare, construction additives, and the healthcare industry has been showcased in this issue of High-Tech Materials TOE. Breathable electronic skins are of great interest when any new wearable device is developed. This issue features breathable electronic skin constructed using a nanofiber substrate. A material used to split water into hydrogen using visible light has been presented in another study. An encapsulation silicone that withdraws most of the challenges of traditional silicones in the cosmetic industry has also been featured. The issue also highlights an organic polymer-based plasticizer that unlike pthalates is highly compatible with cement molecules and can permeate freely around polymer chains. Finally, a naturally sourced collagen that mimics human collagenous tissues and can be used in injectable products is presented.
The High-Tech Materials TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights on various materials across industries. Some material technologies include lightweight materials, bio–based materials, ceramics, smart materials, fibers, nanomaterials, responsive materials, polymers, woven and non woven materials, polymers and plastics and packaging materials.
The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries.
