Abstract:
We report unique triptycene‐based alternating copolymers bearing long alkyl chains as pendants. Syntheses utilized 2,6‐diethynyltriptycene and appropriate alkyloxyarene monomers polymerized via Sonogashira cross‐coupling reaction to yield triptycene‐based poly(phenylene ethynylene)s. Resulting polymers are soluble in organic solvents and were characterized using various techniques. Experimental results suggest the polymers are thermally stable and fluorescent. The fluorescence emission is quenched in the presence of fullerenes (C60 and C70) suggesting strong host–guest interactions. The magnitude of the binding constant between the polymers and these fullerenes was determined to be of the order of 105 mol L−1. The effects of chain length on the morphology and wettability of the polymers on silicon substrates were studied using atomic force microscopy. Three distinct dewetting patterns, i.e. spherical domains, fractal structures and ring structures, were observed with variation in the pendant chain length. This ability to control the thin‐film morphology of the polymers may have potential technological applications, which include but are not limited to sensors, fluorescent coatings and organic electronics.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
