Contents:
Electroactivity: Theoretical Considerations -- Electroactivity: Theoretical Considerations for Contraction -- Bending in Electroactivity -- IPMCs and their Impact on Electroactivity.-Introduction to Ionic Liquids -- Ionic Liquids and EAPs. .
In: Springer eBooksSummary: Electroactivity in Polymeric Materials provides an in-depth view of the theory of electroactivity and explores exactly how and why various electroactive phenomena occur. The book explains the theory behind electroactive bending (including ion-polymer-metal-composites –IPMCs), dielectric elastomers, electroactive contraction, and electroactive contraction-expansion cycles.  The book also balances theory with applications – how electroactivity can be used – drawing inspiration from the manmade mechanical world and the natural world around us.  This book captures: A complete introduction to electroactive materials including examples and recent developments The theory and applications of numerous topics like electroactive bending of dielectric elastomers and electroactive contraction and expansion New topics, such as biomimetic applications and energy harvesting This is a must-read within the electroactive community, particularly for professionals and graduate students who are interested in the fundamental understanding of the electroactive phenomena.
