Azobenzene-substituted polythiophenes were prepared by copolymerization of 3-alkylthiophenes functionalized with an azo-chromophore and 3-alkylthiophenes as plastifying comonomers to improve solubility. Monomers with different oligomethylenic spacer and alkylic chain lengths were synthesized and copolymerized via FeCl3 oxidative polymerization. Polymer soluble fractions were characterized by 1H and 13C NMR, FTIR, UV–Vis spectroscopy, and GPC, DSC and TGA.

Abstract

Azobenzene-substituted polythiophenes were prepared by copolymerization of 3-alkylthiophenes functionalized with an azo-chromophore and 3-alkylthiophenes as plastifying comonomers to improve solubility. Monomers with different oligomethylenic spacer and alkylic chain lengths were synthesized and copolymerized via FeCl3 oxidative polymerization. Polymer soluble fractions were characterized by 1H and 13C NMR, FTIR, UV–Vis spectroscopy, and GPC, DSC and TGA. Second-order non-linear optical properties were measured by the second harmonic generation technique.
