Untapped toolbox of luminol based polymers

Author affiliations

Abstract

The objective of the current Perspective article is to highlight the present state of luminol based polymers, with a specific emphasis on how to include luminol derivatives into polymer chains using both electrochemical and chemical techniques with an underline on new synthetic methods. Importantly, the current limitations that limit the expansion of polymeric luminol derivatives will be discussed by drawing attention to the challenges of solubilising monomers, the harsh conditions leading to undesired side reactions during the polymerization process or the necessity of orthogonal post-modification reactions. Importantly, the article discusses the remaining challenges within the field, while suggesting strategies for the advancement of this versatile class of polymers.
