Our article reporting a strongly solubilising multibranched aliphatic side chain for π-conjugated polymers has been accepted for publication in Chemical Communications. The solubilising capability of the side chain and its effect on the polymer properties are studied on the example of copolymers composed of up to six unsubstituted, ‘unshielded’ thiophene units per side chain-substituted naphthalene diimide unit.
You can read the article here. As most of our recent articles it is open access and free to read for everyone.
