Structural manipulation of conjugated polymers
MetadataShow full item record
The syntheses of new classes of conjugated polymers are presented. The synthesis of novel alkyne bridged trispyrazolylmethane ligands, their coordination behavior and their crystallographic properties are studied. A series of functionalized poly(paraphenyleneethynylene)s, PPEs, are produced by click chemistry with post and pre-polymerization. Unpredictable solid-state polymerizations of defect free conjugated polythiophenes are investigated. Finally, by click chemistry aromatic diazides and aromatic diynes are coupled to produce a library of 1,2,3-triazoles and new conjugated polymers, poly(arylenetriazoline)s.
