The synthesis and characterization of a 1,1′-binaphthyl based main chain chiral conjugated polymer, R-9, is described. The polymer is prepared from the palladium-catalyzed Suzuki coupling of an optically active binaphthyl molecule, (R)-2,2′-dihexyloxy-1,1′-binaphthyl-6,6′- diboronic acid, R-4 with 1,4-bis(p-bromostyryl)benzene (E:Z = 1:1.2), 8. The Suzuki coupling of 8 with 6-neopentyloxynaphthyl-2-boronic acid, 1 1, leads to the formation of a conjugated molecule 10. The structure of this molecule represents the repeat unit of R-9. The electronic absorption spectrum of 10 demonstrates that the degree of conjugation in the chiral conjugated polymer is almost the same as that of its repeat unit.
