Motivated by the persistent desire to develop new materials, which offer currently unavailable functions, research focused on the creation of polymers with tailored properties has evolved into an important field at the interface of chemistry, materials science, physics, and other disciplines. Due to their dynamic, stimuli-responsive nature, non-covalent interactions represent a versatile design element for the creation of stimuli-responsive polymers with unusual functions. Several types of materials that rely on this general design approach will be discussed in this presentation. Interactions that will be covered include hydrogen-bonds, pi-pi stacking, and metal-ligand binding. Such motifs were used to assemble small molecules, supramolecular polymers, and nanoparticles to create mechanochromic, mechanically adaptive, self-healing and other responsive polymeric materials.
