Scholarcy highlights

  • We introduce silyl ether linkage as a novel dynamic covalent motif for dynamic material design
  • Article Views are the COUNTER-compliant sum of full text article downloads since November 2008 across all institutions and individuals
  • The Altmetric Attention Score is a quantitative measure of the attention that a research article has received online
  • Through introduction of a neighboring amino moiety, we show that the silyl ether exchange rate can be accelerated by almost three orders of magnitude
  • By incorporating such silyl ether linkages into covalently cross-linked polymer networks, we demonstrate dynamic covalent network polymers displaying both malleability and reprocessability
  • The tunable dynamic properties coupled with the high thermal stability and reprocessability of silyl ether-based networks open doors to many potential applications for this family of materials
