Abstract

(Figure Presented) A brush with success: Responsive brushes composed of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) grafted onto a poly(thiophene) backbone display the highest water solubility ever reported for a neutral poly(thiophene) as well as temperature-dependent optical properties and water solubilities (see picture). The graft polymer exhibits shifts in the π-π* transition of the poly(thiophene) backbone near the collapse temperature of the poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) chains. © 2005 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
