Changing partner on cue: The interaction between poly(acrylamide)-based hydrogels modified with β-cyclodextrin (βCD gel), ferrocene (Fc gel), and sodium p-styrenesulfonate (SSNa gel) was investigated. The βCD gel and the Fc gel selectively assembled with one another through a host–guest interaction (see picture). On the other hand, when Fc was oxidized to Fc+, the Fc+ gel selectively adhered to the SSNa gel through a cation–anion interaction.
