Synthesis of conjugated polymers using aryl-bromides via Cu-catalyzed direct arylation polymerization (Cu-DArP)

Abstract

Initial reports on the novel Cu-catalyzed direct arylation polymerization (Cu-DArP) stated that it required the use of aryl iodides. Herein, we report the first Cu-DArP methodology using more accessible and practical aryl-bromides with catalytic Cu, leading to a range of conjugated polymers with good molecular weights (up to 17.3 kDa) and an undetectable level of defects.
