Scholarcy highlights

  • A series of polyphenylene derivative polymers with a variety of heterocyclic units along the main chain, and various pendant groups, have been synthesized and their optoelectrochemical properties examined
  • Polyphenylenes containing electronically isolated emitter centers have optical absorption and luminescence characteristics which are a function of the length of the conjugated unit
  • The substituent length has little effect on the electronic properties of the polymer, but greatly affects the polymer's solubility and transport properties during redox switching
