Superglue adhesive (Ethyl cyanoacrylate) detail, scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Cyanoacrylate is a very effective bonding agent especially when sticking non-porous materials or those containing minute traces of water. Those who have used this compound know it is also very good at bonding body tissue. This bothersome side effect of everyday use has been exploited in the medical profession where non-toxic superglues have been developed for the benefit of suture-free surgery.
