Functionalised poly(thiophenes) with specific topologies have the potential to exhibit ferromagnetism. We have utilised this in the design and synthesis of various target monomers and have optimised synthetic routes towards them. These monomers have been chemically and electrochemically polymerised and the resultant materials characterised by variable temperature ESR and UV-VIS spectroscopy and cyclic voltammetry.
