Abstract

Poly(ethylene oxide) has been coupled to poly(3-hexylthiophene) using esterification to produce pure diblock copolymers, highly relevant for use in organic electronic devices. The new synthetic route described herein uses a metal-free coupling step, for the first time, to afford well-defined polymers in high yields following facile purification.
