Synthesis and Liquid Crystalline Properties of New …
Conjugated polymers are of great interest, since they can exhibit switchable optical properties and electrical conductivity. Among these conducting polymers, polythiophene has attracted great attention because they are stable and can be relatively easily functionalized. Liquid-crystalline phases are stable condensed phases in which molecules pack together with an order that is transitional between crystalline solid and the disorder of an isotropic liquid. An achievable method to control the conductivity of conjugated polymers could be to attach mesogenic side groups to them. Conjugated polymers with a liquid crystalline functionality can present both electrical conductivity and self-organizing properties. The field of liquid crystalline conducting polymers is of increasing importance, with the potential to achieve wide commercial applications. In this work, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), hot-stage polarized optical microscopy, x-ray diffractometry (XRD), gel permeation chromatography (GPC), cyclic voltammetry and conductivity measurements have been used to study novel liquid-crystalline polythiophenes. Liquid-crystalline polythiophenes were prepared chemically and deposited as thin-film coatings on indium-tin oxide (ITO) glass by spin- or solution-coating. Cyclic voltammetry was used to study electrochemical guest ion uptake and its reversibility. A computer-controlled potentiostat/galvanostat and a standard calomel reference electrode (SCE) were used. GPC was used to estimate the average polymer molecular masses and to study their distribution. Using DSC, it was possible to study phase changes and to observe the small energy changes involved. The electrical conductivities of the polymer films were measured by 2- or 4-probe methods.
Liquid crystalline (LC) poly(isothianaphthene methine)s have synthesized by introducing phenylcyclohexyl type LC groups into methine moieties as side chains. The polymers were characterized by IR, UV-Vis-nearlR, 1H- and 13C-NMR spectroscopies. All polymers were soluble in common organic solvents and they showed bandgaps of 1.2 〜 1.3 eV. Electrical conductivities of 10-4 - 10-5 S/cm were obtained upon iodine doping. Some of the polymers were confirmed to have mesophase through DSC and POM measurements.
