Force-driven chemical reactions have emerged as an attractive platform for diverse applications in polymeric materials. However, the network topologies necessary for efficiently transducing macroscopic forces to the molecular scale are not well-understood. In this work, we use coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations to investigate the impact of network topology on mechanochemical activation in a self-assembled triblock copolymers. We find that mechanochemical activation during tensile…
