US Researchers at Virginia Tech, in Blacksburg, are developing molecules that can change their shape in response to magnetic or electrical fields, heat, light or pH. The technology offers "exceptional promise" for many emerging biomedical and adhesive applications, such as novel wound dressings and drug delivery to diseased sites in the body, says researcher Professor Timothy Long.
