Anthracene moieties are known to undergo photo-induced cycloaddition under ultraviolet (UV) illumination and can therefore be utilized in preparing photodynamic materials. In this study, we investigate the viscoelastic properties of anthracene-containing random and triblock copolymer solutions during in-situ UV irradiation. Among other findings, we observe that the crosslinking of the anthracene-containing polymer solutions can also take place in dark.
