Abstract

9,9-Bis(4-aminophenyl)fluorene (APF) polymers were synthesized by two different pathways. The different synthetic routes gave polymers with different structures. FT-IR and NMR studies revealed that the catalytic oxidative polymerisation of APF in acetonitrile produced P2, whereas oxidative polymerisation of APF in aqueous alkaline media gave P3. The effects of these different techniques on spectral, thermal, optical, electrical, electrochemical, and morphological properties of resulting polymers were investigated.
