An interpenetrating polymer network (IPN) with molecular tethers can be reversibly switched between two conducting states by the application of a small voltage in the absence of standard liquid electrolyte. The switching causes the nanoporosity of the IPN to change, thus the IPN is able to adopt an “open” state and a “closed” state. The diffusivities of vapor molecules are strongly influenced by the changes in nanoporosity.
