A palladium catalyst is used in the surface-initiated Kumada catalyst transfer polycondensation of poly(3-methylthiophene). Films up to 100 nm in thickness display backbone orientation perpendicular to the substrate. This catalyst system further advances the scope of conjugated polymer synthesis using KCTP.
