Developing mathematical theories of the physical world: Open Access research on fluid dynamics from Strathclyde

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs by Strathclyde's Department of Mathematics & Statistics, where continuum mechanics and industrial mathematics is a specialism. Such research seeks to understand fluid dynamics, among many other related areas such as liquid crystals and droplet evaporation.

The Department of Mathematics & Statistics also demonstrates expertise in population modelling & epidemiology, stochastic analysis, applied analysis and scientific computing. Access world leading mathematical and statistical Open Access research!

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.
