DescriptionThe objective of this research is to up scale the synthesis of previously reported symmetrical and unsymmetrical trifluoromethylated monomers in sufficiently high amounts for the synthesis and characterization of bridge substituted poly (p-phenylene) vinylene polymers. Theoretical NMR calculations are also made to differentiate between diastereomers produced during synthesis. The preliminary polymerization reactions yielded optimistic results but insufficient material was used for proper polymerization, characterization, and isolation. The monomers prepared are shown in Table 1.
