Adhesive compositions and methods of bonding and disbanding involve materials that include a polymer and an electrolyte, wherein the electrolyte provides sufficient ionic conductivity to enable a faradaic reaction at a bond formed between the composition and an electrically conductive surface, allowing the composition to disbond from the surface at room temperature. In some embodiments, the polymer component comprises or consists essentially of a thermoplastic polymer.
