Keywords:

  • branching architecture, and influence on polymer properties - hyperbranched polymers (HBPs), with nonentanglement, low viscosity and good solubility;
  • conjugated polymers, and unique optoelectronic properties - good film-forming and facile fabrication;
  • structure–property relationship of HBPs - building a bridge, between syntheses and applications of HBPs
