Abstract

Herein, we report the design, synthesis and characterization of self-healing magnetic nanocomposites prepared from readily available commodity monomers. These multi-functional materials demonstrate robust mechanical properties, with a Young's modulus of 70 MPa and over 500% extensibility. The magnetic nanocomposites also show self-healing ability, achieving 46% recovery of extensibility in 5 hours in ambient conditions while retaining high magnetic actuation with a commodity magnet.
