Abstract in another language

Nature offers interesting examples of structures with a gradually changing composition that provides unique mechanical properties. Today, the transfer of biological principles to technical applications is gaining increasing attention. One prominent example of the transfer of biomimetic principles to materials science is the mussel byssus. Byssus threads possess gradually changing mechanical properties from soft to stiff in order to
efficiently attach the mussel to the rock. This design is
the basis for polymer gradient materials. Herein, we give a comprehensive overview of the most recent developments in the field of PGMs. In addition to basic terminology and definitions, selected highlights of PGMs are presented, followed by experimental techniques and characterization methods.
