Copper catalyzed synthesis of conjugated copolymers using direct arylation polymerization

Author affiliations

Abstract

Direct Arylation Polymerization (DArP) has almost exclusively relied on noble metal catalysts, such as Pd. We report the first Cu-catalyzed synthesis of conjugated polymers using DArP. The polymers synthesized show an undetectable level of homocoupling or branching defects, good molecular weights (up to 10 kDa), and good yields (up to 97%).
