Synthesis and molecular weight control of poly(3-hexylthiophene) using electrochemical polymerization in a flow microreactor

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new approach for the synthesis and molecular weight control of poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) using electrochemical polymerization in a flow microreactor is described. This synthetic system enabled electrochemical synthesis of soluble P3HT without its deposition using a flow microreactor. Careful selection of the reaction conditions enabled the control of molecular weight and distribution of the synthesized P3HT.
