Pyridine-based copolymers...

Control over the photophysical properties of pyridine-based copolymers is demonstrated by A. P. Monkman and co-workers. These properties are related to the chain rigidity and effective conjugation length of each copolymer as determined by light scattering, ellipsometric, and optical measurements. Very different electronic properties are observed for these polymers in the solid state compared to those in solution. (A. P. Monkman et al., June 18, Adv. Funct. Mater. 2002, 12, 447–454)
