Abstract

As a preliminary study aiming to possible applications, novel polythiophenes (PTs) derivatives of 3-hexylthiophene and a thiophene functionalized with pyrene chromophore were synthesized. Homopolymer and copolymers of these monomers were obtained in different stoichiometric ratios which allow obtaining structure-property relation of each of the polymers. PTs were characterized by FT-IR, 1H NMR, UV-vis, DSC-TGA, GPC and fluorescence experiments. Polymers have λmax between 345 to 450 nm and an emission band at 485 and 542 nm. Low molecular weights distribution (Mn = 875 to 1600 g/mol) and thermostable products (Td = 336 to 474°C) were obtained. These PTs functionalized with aromatic molecules and π-conjugated systems could offer interesting applications such as optical sensors, nonlinear optics and photovoltaic cells.
