This paper investigates the exponential synchronization problem of delayed coupled dynamical networks by using adaptive pinning periodically intermittent control. Based on the Lyapunov method, by designing adaptive feedback controller, some sufficient conditions are presented to ensure the exponential synchronization of coupled dynamical networks with delayed coupling. Furthermore, a numerical example is given to demonstrate the validity of the theoretical results.
