Macromol Rapid Commun. 2015 Oct;36(19):1749-55. doi: 10.1002/marc.201500260. Epub 2015 Jul 28.The formation of a poly(2,6-carbazole) derivative during an electrochemical polymerization process is shown. Comparison of 3,5-bis(9-octyl-9H-carbazol-2-yl)pyridine and 3,5-bis(9-octyl-9H-carbazol-3-yl)pyridine by electrochemical and UV-Vis-NIR spectroelectrochemical measurements and DFT (density functional theory) calculation prove the formation of a poly(2,6-carbazole) derivative. Both of the compounds form stable and electroactive conjugated polymers. © 2015 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
