Synthesis and Electronic/Chiroptical Properties of π-Stacked Polymers

Dibenzofulvene and its derivatives afford polymers through vinyl polymerization, and the resulting polymers have pi-stacked conformation where the main chain has a nearly all-trans (zigzag) conformation and the side chain fluorene moieties are regularly stacked on top of each other. Based on this structure, pi-stacked polymers indicate intriguing photoeletronic properties. This lecture will focus on the synthesis of the π-stacked polymers by anionic polymerization technique, their detailed structural analyses, and their properties including electronic and chiroptical aspects.
