Abstract A “grafting-from” approach to synthesize microparticle-supported conjugated polyelectrolyte brushes is presented. Poly(3-bromohexylthiophene) was selectively grown from monodisperse organosilica microparticles via surface-initiated Kumada catalyst-transfer polycondensation and then ionizable amino groups were introduced by a two-step polymer analogous transformation. Optical properties of the resulting microparticle-supported conjugated polyelectrolyte brushes were found to be dependent on surrounding chemical environment and thus the particles are promising material for sensor applications.
