Abstract

The preparation of a terthiophene system is reported, the monomer is linked to a strongly electron-withdrawing fluorene unit via a conjugated heterocyclic bridge and readily polymerises under electrochemical conditions: to give: the corresponding poly(thiophene). Keywords: Poly(thiophene) and derivatives; heterocycle synthesis; electrochemical polymerisation; special-purpose functionalised conjugated polymers; photoconductivity.
