Shape memory polymers are novel material that can be easily formed into complex shapes, retaining memory of their original shape even after undergoing large deformations the temporary shape is stable and return to the original shape is triggered by a suitable mechanism such heating the polymer above a transition temperature.
Shape-memory polymers (smps) selectively induced by near-infrared lights of 980 or 808 nm were synthesized via free radical copolymerization methyl methacrylate (mma) monomer, ethylene glycol dimethylacrylate (egdma) as a cross-linker, and organic complexes of yb(tta)2aaphen or nd(tta)2aaphen. Biodegradable shape memory polymers the 1990's and the first years of the 21st century began an era of de-gradable shape memory materials such versatile materials. Shape memory medical inc is developing novel peripheral vascular and neurovascular embolization devices based on an exciting new technology - shape memory polymer (smp) foams smp foams are porous polymeric materials capable of changing from one shape to a second 'memorized' shape upon a change of environment.
After being severely and quasi-plastically distorted, shape memory materials (smms) are able to recover their original shape when a right stimulus is applied 1this phenomenon is known as the shape memory effect (sme), and it has been found in a number of material systems, including some alloys, polymers and ceramics etc 2-6.
