Scientists are marvellous magicians who can "turn" stones into gold. Through their efforts, glass becomes almost unbreakable; metal can revert into its original shape by itself after bending; polymers can be converted into the mysterious water absorbent; sand can be transformed into indispensable microchips that we are widely used nowadays. Of course, all these are not magic, but are the results of continuous efforts of scientists on research of the properties of materials and their innovative applications.
