Materials are central to our way of life and future. Energy and materials as resources are connected, and the obvious connections between them are the energy cost of materials and the materials cost of energy. For both of these, resilience of the materials is critical; thus, a major goal of future chemistry should be to find materials for energy that can last longer, that is, design principles for self-repair in these.
