- Mechanochromic dendrimers (MDs) were developed as an ideal model for the elucidation of the relationship between the primary structure of molecules/macromolecules with a mechanophore. We discovered that the ratio of activated mechanophores, i.e., the performance parameter to quantitatively evaluate the mechanical response, drastically increases in higher-generation dendrimers.
