A self-repairing, supramolecular polymer system: healability as a consequence of donor–acceptor π–π stacking interactions

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel supramolecular polymer system, in which the terminal pyrenyl groups of a polyamide intercalate into the chain-folds of a polyimide via electronically-complementary π–π stacking, shows both enhanced mechanical properties relative to those of its individual components and facile healing characteristics as a result of the thermoreversibility of non-covalent interactions.
