Abstract

Elimination of polymer chain entanglements in bottlebrush systems allows tuning bulk mechanical properties over a remarkably broad range without changing chemical composition. grafting density and crosslink density, dielectric elastomers (DEs) can be synthesized with Young�s moduli by independently varying the side-chain length,. The basic principles of architectural control over mechanical properties are outlined in light of the unique properties achievable with bottlebrush elastomers.
