The work exposed in this thesis addresses two main scientific challenges in the field of intrinsic self-healing polymers that limit the translation of the academic research efforts into commercial products, namely: i) the implementation of the self-healing functionality in polymer commodities by minimal chemical modifications; and ii) the establishment of characterization protocols that allow a deeper understanding of the relation between polymer structure and efficient healing capability.
