Metallopolymers combine a processable, versatile organic polymeric skeleton with functional metals, providing multiple functions and methodologies in materials science. Taking advantage of cationic cobaltocenium as the key building block, organogels could be simply switched to hydrogels via a highly efficient ion exchange. With the unique ionic complexion(More)
Bacterial infections, particularly by Gram-negative pathogens, have become a serious threat to global healthcare due to the diminishing effectiveness of existing antibiotics. We report a nontraditional therapy to combine three components in one macromolecular system, in which boronic acid adheres to peptidoglycan or lipopolysaccharide via boron-polyol based(More)
Cationic cobaltocenium-containing polyelectrolytes have a unique ability to form ionic complex with various anionic species. We carried out two sets of model study to compare the relative binding strength of a cobaltocenium-containing polyelectrolyte. First, the nature and relative strength of intermolecular interaction between cobaltocenium-containing(More)
Metal-containing polymer hydrogels have attracted increasing interest in recent years due to their outstanding properties such as biocompatibility, recoverability, self-healing, and/or redox activity. In this short review, methods for the preparation of metal-containing polymer hydrogels are introduced and an overview of these hydrogels with various(More)
