Feedback plays a vital role in the self-regulation of processes that govern biological structure and function such as the switches, rhythms, and synchronized states that are observed in cells. Thus, inspired by the wealth of behavior obtained in biology, chemists are designing novel feedback loops in chemical reaction networks for applications in sensors and structured or responsive materials. Here we discuss the mechanisms of feedback and nonequilibrium state selection in these bioinspired chemical systems.
