Highly sensitive mechano-controlled luminescence in polymer films modified by dynamic CuI-based cross-linkers

Author affiliations

Abstract

Dynamic CuI-based mechanophores used as cross-linkers in polybutylacrylates enable highly sensitive detection of mechanical stress even at small strain (<50%) and stress (<0.1 MPa) values via reversible changes in luminescence intensity. Such sensitivity is superior to previously reported systems based on classical organic mechanophores and it allows for direct visualization of mechanical stress by imaging methods.
