dc.description.abstract Preparation of large single crystals of linear polymers for X‐ray analysis is very challenging. Herein, we employ a coordination‐driven self‐assembly strategy to secure the appropriate head‐to‐tail alignment of anthracene moieties, and for the first time obtained large‐sized Pt‐based linear polymer crystals through a [4+4] cycloaddition of anthracene in a single‐crystal to single‐crystal fashion. Using X‐ray diffraction to determine the polymer crystal structure, we found that both the polymerisation and depolymerisation steps proceed via a stable intermediate. Taking advantage of the temperature‐dependent slow depolymerization, the Pt‐based linear polymer showed potential as a sustained release anticancer drug platform. Utilizing the reversible contraction effect of unit‐cell volume upon irradiation or heating, the stimuli‐responsive crystals were hybridized with polyvinylidene fluoride to obtain a “smart material” with outstanding photoactuator performance en_US
