Mechanochromic Polycarbonate work now out in JACS

Our study “Enabling Room-Temperature Mechanochromic Activation in a Glassy Polymer: Synthesis and Characterization of Spiropyran Polycarbonate” is now out in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. The manuscript was co-first authored by Yuval Vidavsky and Steven Yang and was in collaboration with the Coates group at Cornell and the Diesendruck group at the Technion. This new material system has potential for direct application as a damage warning material and as a means for advancing understanding of plasticity in glassy amorphous polymers.
