Quantitative characterization of the energy dissipation zone around a crack tip is the focal point in the fracture mechanics of soft materials. In this report, we present a mechanochemical techniqu...

Living tissues, such as muscle, autonomously grow and remodel themselves to adapt to their surrounding mechanical environment through metabolic processes. By contrast, typical synthetic materials cannot grow and reconstruct their structures once formed. We propose a strategy for developing “self-growing” polymeric materials that respond to repetitive mechanical stress through an effective mechanochemical transduction. Robust double-network hydrogels provided with a sustained monomer supply under...
