Liquid crystal elastomers (LCEs) have been optimized by combining cross-linkers and dynamic bonds to achieve a reversible actuation behavior comparable to living skeletal muscles. In this study, one unique type of segment with 2-fold dynamic properties was introduced into LCEs, which offered not only dynamic diselenide covalent bonds for thermo-/photoplasticity but also H-bond arrays for dynamic cross-linking and mechanical robustness. Besides self-healing, self-welding, and recyclability, the LCEs were reprogrammable with elevated temperature or intensive visible light irradiation. The resultant LCEs gave an actuation blocking stress of 1.96 MPa and an elastic modulus of 14.4 MPa at 80 °C. The actuation work capacity reached 135.2 kJ m–3. When incorporating the Joule electrode or photothermal materials, the LCEs could be programmed as the electricity-driven and photothermal artificial muscles and thereby promised the application both as a biomimetic artificial hand and as an energy collector from sunlight. Thus, the 2-fold dynamic LCEs offered the pathway of enabling the reversible actuation behavior comparable to living skeletal muscles and promising applications in sustainable actuators, artificial muscles, and soft robots.
