A team of scientists from the Technical University of Munich are working on a substance that decomposes itself after being used. The substance is created from molecular building blocks that only hold form when 'fed' with energy. Should the tests be successful, the substance can be used for several everyday products that have a short life-span and disposed immediately after use.
