Abstract

A redox-active polymer consisting of a poly(siloxane) backbone, a liquid crystalline (LC) unit, and bis(benzodithiolyl)bithienyl moieties was designed and synthesized. The resulting polymer after the incorporation of the redox-active and LC functional units into the poly(siloxane) backbone exhibits a redox response associated with the electrochemical interconversion of the bis(benzodithiolyl)bithienyl moieties.
