Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A novel vinyl ether functionalized fluorene monomer was prepared to produce a series of fluorene-based polymers with different emitter units to cover emission in the visible spectrum whilst retaining the same main absorption profile. The vinyl ether functionality allows for active incorporation of the light emitting polymers into standard vinyl ether and glycidyl ether photoresist materials. This enables photopatterning of light emitting structures for application in UV down-conversion, waveguiding and for lasing media.
