Other Supplementary Material for this manuscript includes the following:

  • Movie S1 (.mp4 format). The viscous poly(TA-DIB-Fe) copolymer between the two slides of glass at a temperature of 60°C can be stretched into filaments by slowly separating the two slides of glass.
  • Movie S2 (.mp4 format). The video shows the self-healing capability of the copolymer under water.
  • Movie S3 (.mp4 format). In a dynamic lifting experiment, the two adhered glass slices can also be used to lift weights of 27 kg.
