molecules to create the framework and zinc atoms as a structural glue, the molecules form structures that are able to self-assemble, giving it the ability to automatically heal after a break.
In addition, an exciting investigation is planned that using photo- or magneto-responsive metal ions to crosslink liquid-crystalline terpyridine
polymers to give elastomers, so that mechanical disturbance of the elastomer will result in an optical or magnetic effect.
