Synthesis of Oligo- and Polysilanes by metal catalyzed dehydrocoupling and investigation of their properties

Project: Research project

Project Details


The aim of this project is the synthesis of novel oligo and polysilanes by metal catalyzed dehydrocoupling of hydro- silanes of the type RSiH3 and (H2RSi)2. The method allows a greater structural diversity of the possible monomers than the classical Wurtz type coupling. The reactivity of various monomers with catalysts of group IV B and VIII is investigated, afforded polymers are modified by polymer- analogous reactions, their properties as holeconducting layers in Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are investigated.
