An Addition to Poly(mechanophore) Synthesis

A heartfelt “well done!” to Brandon and our now-departed summer undergrad Justin, whose paper “High mechanophore content, stress-relieving copolymers synthesized via RAFT polymerization” has been accepted for publication in Macromolecules!  This cool little story shows how controlled radical addition polymerizations can be used to generate polymers with loads of covalently stored length along their backbones.  Congrats, Brandon & Justin!
