As it turned out, the Wudl
team discovered that Meng's material--a polymer that formed in the jar when the stored monomers linked up--conducted electricity better than commercially available versions of the same polythiophene.
"One application for Automend could be for making large lenses, because if cracked the repair would be transparent and would not deform," Wudl
Friedman sought the help of Fred Wudl
, a fullerene expert at the University of California, Santa Barbara, who fashioned a water-soluble version with two charged arms to grasp the protease's binding site.

After receiving his PhD in 1994, Hicks spent two years as an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow working with Fred Wudl
at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where his research activities spanned synthetic organic chemistry, charge transfer salts, electrochemistry, and fullerenes.
Organic chemist Fred Wudl
says his group at the University of California, Santa Barbara, can add up to six carbon atoms, one at a time, to a buckyball without destroying the molecule's soccerball shape or properties.

After observing half a dozen reactions between fullerenes and other chemicals, organic chemist Fred Wudl
of the University of California, Santa Barbara, reports that fullerenes "love electrons" and bond easily with substances that readily give them up.
