Dynamic covalent chemistry in aqueous solution by photoinduced radical disulfide metathesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

Photoinduced radical disulfide metathesis (PRDM) is a dynamic covalent reaction that requires UV light to induce the homolytic cleavage of the disulfide bond, thus offering the opportunity to construct dynamic covalent systems that are dormant and can be photo-activated on demand. In this work, we showcase how PRDM can be utilized in aqueous solution and demonstrate its potential by generating a UV responsive hydrogel from an asymmetrical disulfide precursor.
