ABSTRACT
The article focuses on research which was conducted at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. Researchers at the university worked to develop an inexpensive, mass produced adhesive that has the grabbing power of gecko feet with the sticking power of mussels. They called it geckel, and it was created by coating fibrous silicone with a polymer similar to that which is used by mussels. The adhesive is said to work on both wet and dry surfaces and researchers feel that it may one day replace sutures which are used to close wounds
