Design and synthesis of Alq3-functionalized polymers

Amy Meyers, Marcus Weck

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Synthesis of an Alq3-containing monomer and its chain-growth polymerization were demonstrated via ring-opening metathesis polymerization. Polymerization was complete within 12 h under mild polymerization conditions and solubility could be tailored via the incorporation of a comonomer. All copolymers retained the absorption and emission properties of Alq3 in solution. This indicated that the polymer coil did not interfere with the luminescence properties of the pendant Alq3 groups.
