Microwave-assisted (MA) Suzuki polymerization for polyfluorenes has been systematically investigated. It is very important to control the reaction conditions in order to depress the formation of cross-linked products. Compared with oil bath heating, MA synthesis can greatly reduce the reaction time from 48 h (oil bath heating) to 14 min, and resultant polymer products show the higher molecular weight of 40,000 under optimized conditions.
