Ring opening vs. direct bond scission of the chain in polymeric triazoles under the influence of an external force

Author affiliations

Abstract

Density functional theory calculations show that both ring opening and chain dissociation of polymeric triazoles are facilitated by mechanical stretching of the molecules—the latter more than the former. Experimentally observed ring opening upon sonication can therefore not be explained by a mechanical stretching mechanism alone.
