Abstract

A shape memory polymer film with a stable micro/nano-fibrous structure is prepared via electrospinning of a triethoxysilane end-capped precursor solution, followed by crosslinking. The fibrous structure is stable and reversible for at least three cycles of shape memory tests. The electrospun SMP film also exhibits consistently faster recovery than the bulk film.
