Chromogenic Polymers

This Polymer Bulletin is a current awareness service from the Polymer Library, the world's largest database dedicated to polymer literature.

Product format: Weekly e-mail

Every week when the Polymer Library abstracts database is updated with new records, you will be sent a bulletin alerting you to any items that relate to this topic.


Chromogenic polymers are those polymers which have the ability to change their colour or other optical properties in response to a particular stimulus, including heat (thermochromic or thermotropic), pressure (piezochromic) or light (photochromic). This ability can arise through a number of different physical reactions, but essentially as a property it is either inherent or brought about with additives. These fascinating properties mean that interest in Chromogenic polymers has been increasing over several years and these polymers have a number of potential engineering applications, including in the packaging, medical and glazing industries.

A Current Awareness service from Smithers Rapra may be just what you need to update your knowledge with ease and accuracy without having to waste time, effort and money finding the information yourself. 

If there are many people within your organisation who would benefit from this information then get in touch to talk to us about our multi-recipient bulletin.
