Abstract

The synthesis and properties of polythiophenes, polypyrroles and their oligomers has evolved into a major area of conducting polymer research. Mixed systems containing both thiophene and pyrrole units have received much less attention. In this paper, the chemistry of thiophene-pyrrole oligomers containing up to seven heterocyclic units is reviewed.
