Abstract

The ruthenium-catalyzed Knoevenagel reaction was developed for the preparation of cyano-substituted conjugated polymers. The polymerization was quenched by pouring the reaction mixture into methanol. The structures of polymers were confirmed by spectroscopic studies and elemental analysis. The results show that Knoevenagel polycondensation mediated by transition metal complexes enjoys the advantages of neutral and mild reaction conditions.
