  • Complete introduction to electroactive materials including examples and recent developments
  • Introduces the new topic of electroactive ionic liquids and electroactivity in polymeric materials
  • Discusses the theory and applications of numerous topics likeelectroactive bending, dielectric elastomers and electroactive contraction-expansion cycles

Electroactivity in Polymeric Materials provides an in-depth view of the theory of electroactivity and explores exactly how and why various electroactive phenomena occur. The book explains the theory behind electroactive bending (including ion-polymer-metal-composites –IPMCs), dielectric elastomers, electroactive contraction, and electroactive contraction-expansion cycles.  The book also balances theory with applications – how electroactivity can be used – drawing inspiration from the manmade mechanical world and the natural world around us.  This book captures:

  • A complete introduction to electroactive materials including examples and recent developments
  • The theory and applications of numerous topics like electroactive bending of dielectric elastomers and electroactive contraction and expansion
  • New topics, such as biomimetic applications and energy harvesting

This is a must-read within the electroactive community, particularly for professionals and graduate students who are interested in the fundamental understanding of the electroactive phenomena.
