Elisha Krieg and Dr. Boris Rybtchinski Noncovalent Water-Based Materials: Robust yet Adaptive Chemistry - A European Journal 17
Better than covalent? Noncovalent materials formed by reversible self-assembly are more adaptive than covalent ones. This adaptivity facilitates easy processing, recycling, self-healing, and stimuli-responsiveness. While noncovalent interactions are generally considered weak, strong hydrophobic interactions in water can be exploited to create noncovalent materials that are unusually stable, thus allowing practical use in real-life applications.
