In a recent paper in Nature Chemistry, we report a general multiphase design of stiff polymers that can repair themselves without any external help from light, heat, healing agents, or solvents. The multiphase design is key to combine advanced mechanical properties of nanocomposites with autonomous self-healing capability of supramolecular assembly. The work is also highlighted recently in C&EN News.
