Metallopolymers combine synthetic efficiency and versatility of an organic polymer framework with unique properties of inorganic metals. Cationic metallocene-containing polymers have recently garnered attention with their emerging electrolyte chemistry and niche applications in biomedical fields. Advances in polymerization techniques have provided opportunities to prepare polymers with tunable chemistry and compositions, controlled topologies, predetermined molecular weight and narrow molecular weight distribution. In this presentation, I will talk about the latest development on the use of controlled and living polymerization to prepare well-defined polymers containing cationic metallocene, as well as polyelectrolyte chemistry based on unique ion exchange. These cationic polyelectrolytes have shown surprising promise as novel antimicrobial agents that could kill some of most malicious bacteria. I will also discuss a new strategy to addressing bacteria resistance via revitalizing conventional β-lactam antibiotics
