# rmx-s-chem: a new class of self-healing materials

<< (..) biomolecular machines have been exploited to perform mechanical work to deform and dynamically assemble complex, far-from-equilibrium polymer networks. In biology, tubular structures formed from proteins, e.g., microtubules, function as highways for transporting small molecules. These complex networks could be used to create self-repairing, long-lasting materials >>

<< Using biomolecular machines to continuously assemble one-dimensional arrays may enable a facile entry into a new class of self-healing materials for electronics and solar cells, among other uses >>
