Paper Abstract

Shape Memory Gel (SMG) is one of the most interesting unique soft and wet materials. The elastic modulus of the SMG is changed by the kinds of solvent ( S-switch SMG). Here we have an idea that these properties are possibly applied to develop a novel gel-switch chemical semiconductor, named “Gel-con(ductor)”. The Gel-con will be made from the combination of the different kinds of the S-switch gel membranes and is used to rectify the flux of the solvent in chemical circuits, where the solvent molecules behave as electron and hole.
