Functional Polymers: Luminogenic Polymers – The Series on Functional Polymers Continues
Ben Zhong Tang
Luminogenic polymers is one of the hot topics in polymer research. A large number of luminogenic polymers has been synthesized by incorporating π-conjugated units, such as double or triple bonds, or aromatic rings and their substituted derivatives. In his Essay, guest-editor Ben Zhong Tang emphasizes the importance of this class of polymers as sensory materials or polymer light-emitting diodes, and the problems and developments associated with these applications.
