Light-driven cycloaddition photoswitchable crosslinking dynamic materials
We very recently discovered a new conceptual approach to design polymer materials that can be reversibly crosslinked upon visible light irradiation, yet importantly be kept stable by light. Here, we are devoted to develop and exploit the potential of this new class of ‘light-stabilised dynamic materials’,
which we believe constitutes a key step in the development of next generation light-responsive materials.
