Smart Polymers undergo large reversible changes either in their physical or chemical properties due to the small environmental variations.These Smart Polymers are temperature responsive polymers, the main classes of these temperature responsive polymers are Shape Memory Alloys, Liquid Crystalline Materials and responsive polymer solutions.These materials are sensitive to several factors such as humidity, pH, temperature intensity of light and many more.Due to the wavelength or magnetic field they are capable to respond in different ways like transparency, becoming conductive or changing shape which are usually shape memory polymers.Slight change in the environment is enough to induce a large change in the polymer’s properties.
