Representative molecular snapshots at different compression strain levels. (a, b) Side and top views of typical networked molecules in polymeric particle, respectively. (c, d) Top view of branched and linear chains in polymeric particles, respectively. The red-highlighted chains in the particles (left side of figure) correspond to those shown for each strain level.
