A new multifunctional cationic poly(p-phenylene vinylene) derivative with polyethylene glycol (PEG) side chains is designed to combine recognition, imaging, and killing functions into a single system to achieve a collaborative and selective antimicrobial effect. As reported by Qiong Yang, Shu Wang, and co-workers, this new strategy will exert a far-reaching impact on the future development of antimicrobial materials, exhibiting potential applications in pathogen infections and medical implants.
