A Sticky Breakthrough: UCSB researchers make strides in their quest to develop an underwater adhesive

Dec 2, 2015

In an important step toward creating a practical underwater glue, researchers led by MCDB professor Herb Waite have designed a synthetic material that combines the key functionalities of interfacial mussel foot proteins, creating a single, low-molecular-weight, one-component adhesive. Their findings appear in the journal Nature Communications.
