Here, we designed and synthesized a supramolecular material that can be self-healing. This synthesized oligomer contains many hydrogen bonds which make it easily to form 3D network. The as-prepared material is transparent and recyclable as the assemblies of the blocks crosslink the polymer chain into supramolecular material. The dissociation/association of the reversible bonds contributes to the healing properties. Furthermore, the mechanical and healing properties of the obtained supramolecular material can be changed by tuning its composition.<embed height="0" id="xunlei_com_thunder_helper_plugin_d462f475-c18e-46be-bd10-327458d045bd" type="application/thunder_download_plugin" width="0" />
