Preparation of polythiophene microrods with ordered chain alignment using nanoporous coordination template

Author affiliations

Abstract

The properties of polymeric materials can be amplified by macromolecular alignment. The highly ordered chain alignment of unsubstituted polythiophene, an unprocessable polymer, has been achieved using a porous coordination polymer (PCP) as a template. Due to the extended conjugation system, the obtained anisotropic polymer particles exhibit higher conductivity than that of polythiophene prepared by solution polymerization.
