- Conjugated polymers for the fluorescent detection of nitroaromatics: Influence of side-chain sterics and π-system electronics
Tyler L. Duniho, Brynna J. Laughlin, Ashley A. Buelt, William F. Baker, Catherine A. Conrad and Rhett C. Smith
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

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.
- Two-Step direct arylation for synthesis of naphthalenediimide-based conjugated polymer
Yuta Nohara, Junpei Kuwabara, Takeshi Yasuda, Liyuan Han and Takaki Kanbara
Article first published online: 5 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/pola.27140
A two-step direct arylation reaction of ethylenedioxythiophene gives a naphthalene diimid-based conjugated polymer, which is ordinarily difficult to be synthesized by direct arylation. The physical properties of the obtained polymer are characterized and the polymer shows an ambipolar property in OFET.
- A convenient approach to amphiphilic hyperbranched polymers with thioether shell for the preparation and stabilization of coinage metal (Cu, Ag, Au) nanoparticles

Article first published online: 5 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/pola.27134
Partially functionalized hyperbranched polyglycerols with thioether units have been straightforwardly prepared, leading to globular polymers with core-shell structure. They are been used as an excellent platform for the preparation and stabilization of long-term stable coinage metal nanoparticles such as copper (less than 4 nm) and silver (1 to 2 nm) nanoclusters, as well as aggregated gold nanoparticles (12 nm).
