Functional Polymers: Design and Properties of Functional Conjugated Organic Polymers
C. Li and Y. Li*
In their Feature Article, C. Li and Y. Li summarize recent studies on the design and properties of conjugated polymers (polyacetylenes, poly(p-phenyleneethynylenes), and polydiacetylenes) derived from triple-bond containing building blocks and explore the potential applications of these materials. With an emphasis on the developments in their own group in recent years their intense attention is focused on constructing different molecular systems with enhanced light-harvesting efficiency, and determining the functional properties of conjugated organic polymers, which might be useful candidates for various potential applications.
