Özet

The synthesis, characterization and engineering of a novel polymer based on a unique combination of 1,3,5,7-tetramethyl-8-(4-nitro-phenyl)-2,6-bis(2-thienyl)-4,4-difluoroboradiazaindacene and 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene are highlighted. It was found that the polymer represents an environmentally robust electroactive material bearing high stability, well-defined quasi-reversible redox couple, and fast response time between redox states as well as high coloration efficiency.
