Taking advantage of nitrene chemistry, in particular the high reactivity, graphene moieties are successfully introduced into polyacetylenes to yield both the soluble and insoluble parts of polymer-graphene composites. Upon the attachment of graphene, the luminescence of the polyacetylenes is enhanced without affecting the electronic structure of graphene. These results are recently published as part of the ongoing series on Functional Polymers - Luminogenic Polymers in Macromolecular Chemistry and Physics.
