Synthesis and Characterization of Polyacetylene with Side-chain Thiophene Functionality


A new polyacetylene derivative with electroactive thiophene substituent, namely poly(2-methylbut-2-enyl thiophene-3-carboxylate) was synthesized and characterized. For this purpose, novel acetylene monomer was synthesized by the reaction of 3-thiophenecarboxylic acid with propargyl bromide and polymerized with a Rh catalyst to give the corresponding polymer… (More)
