Abstract

Well-defined polystyrene (PSt) based polymers containing middle- or end-chain 2,5- or 3,5-dibromobenzene moieties, prepared by Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization (ATRP) were implied in Suzuki type couplings with 1-naphthalene boronic acid. The resulting polymers, containing a conjugated sequence with 1-naphthyl groups at the extremities, were used as macromonomers in chemical oxidative polymerization in the presence of anhydrous FeCl3. Polyarylenes, with a hairy-rod structure, having binaphthyl groups in the main chain and the respective PSt chains as lateral substituents, were obtained.
