The field of soft condensed matter science, which encompasses polymers, biomolecules, and complex fluids, is interdisciplinary and rapidly growing. In his Perspective, McLeish discusses work reported in the same issue by Sijbesma et al. on a class of hydrogen-bonded self-assembled polymers that may serve as a model system for soft matter studies.
