Hakan Ceylan, Mustafa Urel, Turan S. Erkal, Ayse B. Tekinay, Aykutlu Dana and Mustafa O. Guler Supramolecular Polymers: Mussel Inspired Dynamic Cross-Linking of Self-Healing Peptide Nanofiber Network (Adv. Funct. Mater. 16/2013) Advanced Functional Materials 23
A supramolecular hydrogel network is held intact through non-covalent interactions among lowmolecular weight building blocks. The intermolecular interactions among the building blocks are important for stimuli-responsive modulation and self-healing properties. On page 2081 Aykutlu Dana, Mustafa O. Guler, and co-workers show that a mussel-inspired metal-ion coordination into the supramolecular polymer network is advantageous for improving mechanical properties as well as retaining the original properties of the network.
