Synthesis, characterization and electrochromic properties of novel redox triarylamine-based aromatic polyethers with methoxy protecting groups

Author affiliations

Abstract

Five novel triphenylamine derivatives with two silyl ether protecting groups were readily synthesized and further underwent silyl polycondensation to obtain novel electro-active aromatic polyethers. These polymers exhibited high optical transparency, were colourless, were soluble in many organic solvents, and had useful levels of thermal stability associated with moderately high glass-transition temperatures and char yields. These anodically polymeric electrochromic materials displayed highly reversible electrochemical and electrochromic behaviour, with interesting and useful multi-colour changes related to their different oxidation stages.
