Endgroup and Sidechain Functionalization of Surface-Initiated ROMP Thin Films: Progress Towards ROMP-Based Molecular Wires

2018-03-08T16:29:13Z (GMT) by Nicholas Marshall
A set of experiments in surface-initiated ring-opening metathesis polymerization, including end-functionalization of growing brushes and contact angle/cyclic voltammetry measurements. We report preparation and CV of two different conjugated polymer films, and several endgroup and sidechain functionalization experiments using cross-metathesis and active ester substitution.
