Entropic chain effects on dynamic bonding reactions are shown to enable the tuning of reaction equilibria not only by changing the mass of the reactants, but also by merely altering the building block side chain structure and thus the intrinsic stiffness. The findings enable a step change for the design of on-demand bonding systems and reversible ligation chemistry in general.
