Here, we show that brush elastomers made by ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP) of norbornene-terminated poly(dimethylsiloxane) macromonomers are less extensible than brush elastomers with the methacrylate backbone yet not as extensible (λmax) as predicted by the strain-stiffening parameter (β) derived from fitting the experimental stress–strain curves.
This Review highlights these recent discoveries, along with their limitations and clinical opportunities.
This study uses dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) to probe thermal relaxations of a systematic set of polymers based around the benzodithiophene (BDT) moiety.
