Solvent-Free Synthesis of a Porous Thiophene Polymer by Mechanochemical Oxidative Polymerization

Abstract

This study elucidates a mechanochemical synthesis pathway towards a microporous thiophene polymer via an oxidative polymerization. Utilizing a design of experiments approach we developed a synthesis inside a planetary ball mill leading to complete conversion and a porous polymer with a surface area of up to 1850 m2g-1 - almost twice as high as the conventional material prepared by solution-based polymerization. Thus, this approach presents a solvent free, quick and scalable alternative for the production of porous polymers.
