Abstract : This research project is focused on the development and investigation of a new class of multi-stimuli-responsive polymers, which are designed exhibit different responses upon exposure to different stimuli. The concept here is the development of materials systems that consist of different stimuli-responsive components which can be designed to work orthogonally or interact with each other such a way that exposure to more than one stimulus alters the state of the system in a nonlinear manner. This report focuses on the development a range on new material that includes studies metallo and hydrogen bonded supramolecular polymers that exhibit defect healing characteristics and multi-responsive actuators. It also report on a new class of supramolecular glasses.
