Craig Lab Continues to Expand the Utility of Responsive Polymers

Responsive Polymers

Work from the Craig lab shows how embedded mechanophores can be used to transduce mechanical force into triggered polymer network deconstruction.  The paper, "Mechanically Triggered Polymer Deconstruction through Mechanoacid Generation and Catalytic Enol Ether Hydrolysis," is available at J. Am. Chem. Soc.
