Abstract

original image

Ortho′s, Athos, and Aramis: The ortho-carborane-functionalized polyethylene, a new family of carborane-functionalized polymer, has been designed and synthesized by the copolymerization of ethylene with ω-ortho-carboranyl-α-olefin using a metallocene catalyst. A thin film of the copolymer displayed strong blue emission under UV irradiation whilst degradation of the carborane cage led to disappearance of the emission.
