Synthesis and Characterization of a Novel Linear Conjugated Polymer, Poly(2,5 - didodecyloxy - 1,4 - phenyleneoctatetraynylene)
A novel linear conjugated polymer, poly(2,5-didodecyloxyphenyleneoctatetraynylene), was synthesized by an oxidative coupling of 2,5-didodecyloxy-1,4-dibutadiynylbenzene in presence of a CuCl-TMEDA catalyst under O<SUB>2</SUB> . The polymer was stable under air and soluble in organic solvents. The structural analyses and the characterizations were carried out by Raman, NMR, and UV-Vis.
