A facile avenue to conductive polymer brushes viacyclopentadiene–maleimide Diels–Alder ligation

Author affiliations


Cyclopentadienyl end-capped poly(3-hexylthiophene) was employed to fabricate conductive surface tethered polymer brushes via a facile route based on cyclopentadienemaleimide Diels–Alder ligation. The efficient nature of the Diels–Alder ligation was further combined with a biomimetic polydopamine-assisted functionalization of surfaces, making it an access route of choice for P3HT surface immobilization.
