Twice as good: Parallel electrochemical oxidation and reduction of a single parent polymer (P1) simultaneously provided two corresponding polymers (P2 and P3), which were easily separated. Upon UV irradiation, the color of the emissions of the P2 and P3 films were drastically different to that of P1 (left). Parallel reactions on a bipolar electrode afforded a multicolored gradient film (right).
