New MONET Publication in Macromolecules

A team from the Rubinstein and Craig labs present a modified Lake–Thomas theory that accounts for the molecular details of network connectivity upon crack propagation in polymer networks. In comparison with the “strong” mechanophores that can only be activated in the bridging strand, “weak” mechanophores that can be activated both in the bridging strand and in other generations could provide more energy dissipation due to their larger contribution to higher generations of the tree.
