Two dimensional semiconducting polymers
Two-dimensional semiconducting polymers (2DSPs) with planar π-conjugated structures have emerged as a new type of functional polymer material with unique chemical and physical properties. Their potential exciton migration and charge carrier transport in two dimensions are expected to bring new applications in optical, electrical, and sensing devices. In this review, we summarize recent synthetic strategies towards high-quality 2DSPs with controllable chemical structures, physical dimensions, and properties. We also discuss the perspectives of the potential applications of 2DSPs as advanced functional materials.
