|Title:||Synthesis And Characterization Of Thienyl-and Terthienyl-group-bearing Methacrylic Polymers As Precursors For Grafting Reactions Of Thiophene Side-chains|
|Abstract:||Acrylic and methacrylic monomers bearing pyrrolyl, thienyl and terthienyl groups, were synthesized and copolymerized with various amounts of butyl acrylate and butyl methacrylate. In the resulting copolymers the heterocycle side-groups behaved as initiators in the oxidative polymerization of thiophene, allowing the polythiophene chains to grow from the side-groups and leading therefore to graft copolymers. These last were collected mostly as insoluble fractions after extraction with chloroform. Processible polymers with polythiophene side-chains were obtained when in the precursor polymer the heterocycle side-group content was very low. The presence in the graft copolymers of a significant number of stiff polythiophene side-chains was responsible for the rise in Tg values in comparison with the precursor polymers. The average number of grafted thiophene units, evaluated in the range 2-7.5, did not relate directly to measured conductivity values that were in the range 5.9 x 10-5 -6.2 x 10-2 S cm-1. © 1999 Society of Chemical Industry.|
