Thus, we continued our study by synthesizing dimeric anthracene-based mechanophore particles as novel mechanophores in epoxy composites [63], The particles were able to achieve damage precursor detection in the epoxy matrix, thus in this work, we sought to prove the use of these novel particles as universal stress-sensitive particles in thermoset matrices regardless of the matrix chemistry.
