Enabling shape memory and healable effects in a conjugated polymer by incorporating siloxane via dynamic imine bond

Author affiliations

Abstract

A conjugated polymer of poly(fluorene-co-benzothiadiazole) (PFBT) was modified by a soft segment of poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) to yield a copolymer via dynamic imine bonds. The copolymer was casted as a free-standing film, which was intrinsically flexible, stretchable, and showed tunable shape memory, healable and degradable effects.
