Functional Polymers: Accessing New DPP-Based Copolymers by Direct Heteroarylation Polymerization

Functional Polymers: Accessing New DPP-Based Copolymers by Direct Heteroarylation Polymerization

Jean-Rémi Pouliot, Lauren G. Mercier, Samuel Caron, Mario Leclerc*

The direct heteroarylation polymerization methodology was adapted for the diketopyrrolopyrrole moiety, giving rise to copolymers that were difficult to obtain from standard Stille or Suzuki couplings. These new low-bandgap polymers proved to be efficient electron-transporting materials enabling possible applications in all-plastic solar cells.
