  • Describes smart, biomimetic materials in the context of nanotechnology, biotechnology, and self-organization
  • Covers self-healing, self-lubricating, and self-cleaning materials with applications to green technologies in areas such as energy, biomedical devices, and defense
  • Presents a unified approach by leading researchers in the field covering both theoretical and practical issues

Biomimetics in Materials Science provides a comprehensive theoretical and practical review of biomimetic materials with self-healing, self-lubricating and self-cleaning properties. These three topics are closely related and constitute rapidly developing areas of study. The field of self-healing materials requires a new conceptual understanding of this biomimetic technology, which is in contrast to traditional  engineering processes such as wear and fatigue.  Biomimetics in Materials Science is the first monograph to be devoted to these materials. A new theoretical framework for these processes is presented based on the concept of multi-scale structure of entropy and non-equilibrium thermodynamics, together with a detailed review of the available technology. The latter includes experimental, modeling, and simulation results obtained on self-healing/lubricating/cleaning materials since their emergence in the past decade.
