In article number 1702784, G. Julius Vancso and co-workers report an organometallic polymer with sulfonate side groups for transmittance control. The novel polymer, produced by a simple one-step synthesis, exhibits both a lower critical solution temperature (LCST)-type phase transition and an “isothermal” redox-triggered phase transition in aqueous solution, leading to a new type of “smart window” by using thermal and electrical triggers.
