Caption: Electroactive bioplastic research. Technician evaluating the strength and flexibility of starch-based electroactive bioplastics. Bioplastics are plastics that are derived from renewable biomass sources, such as vegetable oil or corn starch. Electroactive bioplastics are made using polymers that change shape and/or size when stimulated by electricity. It is hoped they may be used in biomedical applications, specialized sensors, light-emitting diodes, and even the next generation of robotic Mars rovers. Photographed at the National Center for Agricultural Utilization Research, Peoria, Illinois, USA.
