In this thesis we tackle the synthesis, characterization and function of novel organometallic polyanions, polycations, and their corresponding hydrogels and explore the use of these redox-responsive water-soluble or water-swellable materials in applications where either their charge or their redox activity leads to new opportunities, such as in metal nanoparticle fabrication and transfection. In addition, crown ether-functionalized aromatic polymers and organometallic polymers will be explored for ion separation and – sensing.
