Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


In this PhD research, we aimed for the development of anthracene-based materials that are reversibly crosslinked. While we initially looked for recyclability, remendability and stress-relaxation, our findings proved to also be fundamental in nature and applicable for many (smart) polymer systems.
