We are developing new methods for controlled preparation of ?-conjugated (semiconducting) polymers of various architectures for needs of organic electronics (e.g., solar cells, field transistors, light-emitting diodes, energy storage devices, sensors, etc.).
- Externally-initiated Kumada catalyst-transfer polycondensation
- Mechanistic studies
- Conjugated polymer brushes
- Hairy particles
- Chain-growth Suzuki polycondensation
- Novel polymerization of electron-deficient monomers
