“Impossible” plastic-like material could make laptops, smartphones even thinner and sturdier

Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Engineering (MIT) have designed a new product making use of a new polymerizing procedure. The material, named 2DPA-1, a form of polyaramide, is stated to be as gentle as plastic and as solid as metal even improved, it can be produced at industrial scale which bodes very well for its go-to-current market timeframe.

The product, which is the initially polymer to be polymerized in 2D, adopts a planar construction, as opposed to a string just one assume spaghetti strains and lasagne sheets. The workforce, led by Michael Strano, the Carbon P. Dubbs Professor of Chemical Engineering at MIT, managed to crack a problem that has remaining numerous generations of Ppolymer scientists befuddled.
