Abstract

Random regioregular copolymers of 3-hexylthiophene and 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene were synthesized by grignard metathesis polymerization. Soluble copolymers were obtained with a high degree of regioregularity and with a monomer ratio close to the feed ratio. A comparison between the optical properties and the thin film morphologies of these copolymers and poly(3-hexylthiophene) is also presented. © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
