Supramolecular polymers are, at least partially, comprised of non-covalent bonds which introduce a special property: Reversibility in bonding. Thus, the materials can be disassembled if a proper stimulus is applied: for example temperature, pH value or redox chemistry (reduction and oxidation).

The most prominent types of non-covalent interactions – hydrogen bonding, metal-to-ligand complexation and host-guest interactions – are summarized in the book regarding their utilization in the field of supramolecular polymers, such as self-healing materials or drug delivery in the human body.
