Combining Mobile and Dynamic Bonds for Rapid and Efficient Self-Healing Materials

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate


Self-healing occurs through a combination of physical (conformational changes) and chemical (bond reformation) phenomena. In this issue of Chem, Harada and coworkers make use of the best of both worlds to create a rapidly self-healing material by combining the mobility of a polyrotaxane with the versatility of dynamic covalent chemistry.
