Abstract:

This program has, as its stated goal, the design of the first organic polymeric superconductor. In year one we have embarked on the design of several model compounds so as to ascertain the most appropriate synthetic methodology for the polymer systems, and to determine the existence of any potential problems in solubility and processibility parameters in the chosen systems. Upon synthesis the redox properties of the model compounds and their compatibility with various counter ions will be determined, as well as their packing efficiency via x-ray spectroscopy.
