ß-Terthiophene aldehyde and phosphonate: Key building blocks for the synthesis of functionalised conducting polymers

Journal Article


Abstract


  • A simple and efficient methodology has been developed for the synthesis of β-functionalised terthiophene monomers, conducting polymer precursors. Using a building block approach, the key materials, β-terthiophene aldehyde and phosphonate, were constructed with Suzuki chemistry. Reactions of these building blocks with the appropriate coupling partner under Wittig/Horner-Emmons conditions provides conjugatively-linked functionalised monomers. © 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.
