Abstract

Some original poly(tetrasubstituted imidazole)s incorporating different units were synthesized and characterized. These materials were obtained via a cascade polycondensation process assisted by microwave irradiation that was developed by our team. This time, we integrated two well-known chromophore structures into the macromolecular backbone, which were benzothiadiazole (BTD) and diketopyrrolopyrrole (DKPP). These new polymers were fully characterized: their chemical structures were confirmed using NMR spectroscopy and their thermal, optical and electrochemical properties were investigated and compared with a reference polymer containing a phenyl spacer instead of the mentioned chromophore units. These materials were found to exhibit a large Stokes shift of up to 350 nm. Furthermore, a polymer presenting large absorption on the UV–visible range and an emission close to the near-infrared region was obtained by coupling the mentioned moieties. According to the established properties of this latter polymer, it presents a potential for applications in biological imaging or optoelectronic devices.
