Mechanochromic spiropyran based polymers that change color after stretching. a Spiropyran(SP) embedded poly(methyl acrylate) exhibits color change from yellow to red by ring opening reaction induced by applied strain. b Indolinospiropyran-poly(e-caprolactone) films turned to blue colored merocyanine form by mechanical force-induced bonds rearrangements. c Spiropyran embedded PDMS elastomer is patterned on a PDMS substrate and show a word “STOP” after a deformation
