Abstract/Summary

This chapter presents selected literature examples to review the development of the use of donor–acceptor π–π stacking interactions as transient cross-links in supramolecular polymer networks. The chapter examines notable examples of these highly specific and directional interactions and illustrates how they can be utilised to reliably produce functional supramolecular, self-assembled systems. Knowledge gained from these fundamental studies has enabled the design, synthesis and application of donor–acceptor stacked supramolecular motifs in non-covalent polymer networks, which is exemplified through detailing the production, physical properties and optimisation of healable materials.
