Abstract

The properties of polymeric materials can be amplified by macromolecular alignment. The highly ordered chain alignment of unsubstituted polythiophene, an unprocessable polymer, has been achieved using a porous coordination polymer (PCP) as a template. Due to the extended conjugation system, the obtained anisotropic polymer particles exhibit higher conductivity than that of polythiophene prepared by solution polymerization.
