CHAPTER 4

Polymer Mechanofluorochromic Materials

An overview of mechanoflurochromism of covalently linked dye-polymers, including reactive mechanophore-polymers and packing-changeable polymers has been presented. Their basic preparation methods and mechanochromic mechanism, as well as most of the reported systems have been described. From the point of view of future applications, the mechanoflurochromic covalently linked polymers are very limited at present, however, they are absolutely tempting.
