Equipping a polymeric material with the ability to heal an inflicted damage is a crucial advantage for many applications. The incorporation of reversible and dynamic supramolecular interactions into polymeric systems has proven to be a promising route towards such materials. In this article, recent developments in the field of healable materials are highlighted with a particular focus on the design principles, driving forces, and mechanisms that allow healing to occur.
