2013). One of the latest research application potentials of SMPs is their role in controlling obesity caused by overeating. As an intragastric implant, one could be made to expand when a certain amount of food is eaten, giving an impression of fullness and hence helping the individual to lose weight naturally (Patent, PCT/US2006/004728). , 2014). In the company of conductive polymers, they could also be used as electroactive and remote sensing actuators (Smith, 2010; Wan and Stylios, 2007). One non-invasive potential application of shape memory polymers is their utilisation in the possible treatment of venous leg ulcers.

2011; BouasLaurent and Durr, 2001). 1 Absorption spectra of a photochromic compound. Owing to UV irradiance (hn1) spectrum A is changed into spectrum B. Reversible reaction is photochemically (hn2) or thermally (n) induced. occurs is actually cleavage of the carboneoxygen bond, triggered exclusively by UV light. The result is a ring-opened coloured species, called the ‘merocyanine’ form or MC. 1 depicts a perfectly ideal photochromism in which there is no visible colouring of the system on irradiation by visible light spectra, and the hypsochromic shift (towards higher wavelength frequency) of lmax is triggered only by an introduction of the change (visible light vs UV).
