Abstract

Linked: Polymers cross-linked with diarylbibenzofuranone units have been prepared by polyaddition. The exchange of bonds of the gels and their macroscopic self-healing were accomplished under air at room temperature in the dark. The macroscopic fusion of completely separated parts was successful (see picture).
