Abstract / Description

Following a brief review on conducting polymers, eight B-functionalised thiophene derivatives viz; trans-l,2-bis(3 ’-thienyl)ethene, [1]; trans-l-(l ‘-pyrenyl)-2-(3’’-thienyl)ethene, [2]; trans-l-(p-N,N-dimethylaminophenyl)-2-(3 ‘-thienyl)ethene, [3]; trans-l-(ferrocenyl)-2-(3 ‘-thienyl)ethene, [4]; (E,E)-3,4-bis-(2 ‘-ethenylferrocenyl)thiophene, [5]; l-(ferrocenyl)-3-(3 ‘-thienyl)prop-2-en-1 -one, [6] ; (E,E)-1,5-bis(3 ‘-thienyl)penta-1,4-dien-3-one, [7] ; all-trans 1,9-bis(3 ’-thienyl)nona-l,3,6,8-tetraen-5-one,[8]; and 3-(trimethylsilyl)thiophene, [9] were synthesised as precursors for anodic electropolymerisation though an anticipated 2,5 ’-coupling of their respective thiophene moieties. The spectroscopic properties of these novel compounds, including their electrochemical behaviour, are presented.
