Abstract

Polymer gels were synthesized that could memorize their original assembly of monomers. In proving the memory of these assemblies, the concepts of attraction via target molecules and molecular imprinting played a key role. The frustration was introduced using covalent cross-links, and the memory of monomer complexes up to the cross-link density was achieved.
