Abstract

Metallo-supramolecular polymers and gels have been prepared from ditopic monomer units, which consist of a 4-hydroxy-2,6bis(l'methyl- benzimidazolyOpyridine unit attached to bom ends of a polyether chain, mixed with either a transition metal ion (e.g. Co(II) or Zn(II)) or a combination of transition and lanthanoid metal (e.g. La(III), Eu(III)) ions. Such materials show dramatic reversible responses to a variety of stimuli, including thermal, mechanical, chemical and light.
