Abstract

Approaches to the synthesis of block copolymers containing organic semiconductor segments (polythiophene, perylene diimide) by RAFT polymerization have been explored. A method involving transformation of a vinyl derivative to a macro-RAFT agent provides for the synthesis of block copolymers which are joined by a short non-hydrolysable linkage.
