The eight-membered cyclic monomer bearing a dibenzobicyclic moiety was polymerized via Ru-catalyzed ring-opening metathesis to afford high polymers. Hydrogenation of the obtained polymer quantitatively proceeded with a homogeneous transition metal catalyst under H2 atmosphere. Self-standing membranes of the nonhydrogenated and hydrogenated polymers showed high transparency in the region of >300 nm. Mechanical grinding of the polymers induced the formation of anthracene in solid state, transforming the polymers into blue-luminescent materials under UV irradiation.
- Conjugated polymers for the fluorescent detection of nitroaromatics: Influence of side-chain sterics and π-system electronics

Article first published online: 6 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/pola.27143
The current study was undertaken with the aim of determining the relationship between a luminescent polymer structure and its ability to detect nitroaromatic explosives such as TNT. Eight new polymers were studied and compared with data from prior studies.
- Highly sulfonated polyelectrolytes through friedel–crafts sulfonylation of polyarylenes
Stephen M. Budy and Douglas A. Loy
Article first published online: 6 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/pola.27139
Friedel–Craft sulfonylation of polyarylenes with 1,3,5-benzenetrisulfonylchloride has been demonstrated to yield soluble and processable, highly sulfonated polyarylenes (IEC 1.9-2.9 milliequivalents/gram) that do not swell in water and are stable to 280 °C. The new method provides an alternative, more efficient approach to sulfonating aromatic polymers.
- Functional aramids: Aromatic polyamides with reactive azido and amino groups in the pendant structure
Miriam Trigo-López, Jesús Luis Pablos, Félix Clemente García, Felipe Serna and José Miguel García
Article first published online: 5 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/pola.27141
Functional aromatic copolyamides with pendant azide and primary amine groups are presented as easily derivatizable parent copolymers, producing high-performance materials with a number of functional groups with a la carte properties.
