Mechanochromic dendrimers: the relationship between primary structure and mechanochromic properties in the bulk

Author affiliations

Abstract

Mechanochromic dendrimers (MDs) were developed as an ideal model for the elucidation of the relationship between the primary structure of molecules/macromolecules with a mechanophore. We discovered that the ratio of activated mechanophores, i.e., the performance parameter to quantitatively evaluate the mechanical response, drastically increases in higher-generation dendrimers.
