Abstract:

NLO polymers NLOPs based on the polyp-phenylene PPP backbone were prepared in the study. Starting from readily synthesized NLO-phore monomers, homopolymerization afforded low molecular weight PPPs with the NLO- phore attached to the polymer backbone through a sulfone linkage. The thermal and linear optical behavior of the new materials is discussed in the paper. NonLinear Optical, Polymers, Conjugated Polymers, Polyphenylenes
