Abstract

In the past few years, combining supramolecular and macromolecular chemistries has become of great interest to yield dynamic and responsive assemblies with self-restructuring abilities. Among them, polymer networks, that are held together by one or a combination of supramolecular interactions, offer new possibilities to scientists for the creation of artificial materials with self-healing properties. In particular, incorporating coordination complexes into polymeric architectures opens up the possibility of imparting the physicochemical properties of both partners to the resulting material. Here, recent achievements in the field of supramolecular gels that are formed via self-assembly of oligo- and polymeric units through reversible metal–ligand interactions are reviewed. The different strategies and routes for the elaboration of those materials are reported as well as the properties that the coordination centers confer to the supramolecular assemblies.

Keywords

Polymer gels Metal–ligand interactions Metallo-supramolecular polymers Coordination gels
