Abstract

Don't forget poly(disulfide)s. There is a rich literature pointing out the advantages of the dynamic nature of single disulfide bridges to explore self-sorting, biomolecular engineering, biomembrane analysis, and so on. Disulfide bonds between polymer chains are essential for protein folding, materials properties and the stabilization of various supramolecular architectures. However, poly(disulfide) s with disulfide bonds in the main chain are rarely used today to create interesting structures or functions. To attract attention and outline scope and limitations of poly(disulfide) s to build modern supramolecular systems, the rather eclectic recent literature on the topic is summarized. The review is moving from fascinating basic studies including photoinduced metathesis, polycatenanes and polyrotaxanes to applications in biosupramolecular systems such as micelles, membranes, tubes, gels, carriers, pores, sensors, catalysts and photosystems.
