Adaptive & Autonomic Materials

Unlike conventional materials, autonomic materials dynamically sense, react, and adapt to external stimuli. We can formulate multifunctional nanostructures, and our Nano-Lamp™ technology provides photochemical triggering. Typically, adaptive and autonomic materials possess multiple functionalities, where both the stimuli and the responses can be thermal, mechanical, optical or chemical in nature.

Fields of use

  • Medical
  • Transportation
  • Energy
  • Information
  • Forensics


  • Drug delivery
  • Self-healing
  • Sensing and signaling
  • Self-patterning

Hybrid Materials

Hybrid materials lay at the interface between organic and inorganic materials. The lines between filler and matrix are blurred as the secondary phase is reduced to molecular length scales.

We have experience in the synthesis, formulation, and computer modeling of:

  • Metal phosphonates
  • Metal oxoclusters
  • Metal-organic frameworks
  • Cubic silsesquioxanes
  • Silicate polymers
