Solvents Effects on Film Morphologies and Memory Behavior of a Perylenediimide-Containing Pendent Polymer.


PMID 29741817

Abstract

The large polydispersity index of functional pendant polymers has hindered their application in semiconductors. Herein, a novel pendant polymer with perylenediimide (PDI) in the side chains was successfully synthesized through ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP) with a very low polydispersity index. The synthesized polymers were spin-coated on indium tin oxide (ITO) substrate by using a mixture of 1,2-dichlorobenzene (o-DCB) and methanol (MeOH) solvents. The surface morphologies and intermolecular π-π stacking of the fabricated film could be adjusted through tuning of the ratio of o-DCB and MeOH, and thus, the sandwich-structured device of ITO/polymer/aluminum exhibited different electrical behavior. The threshold voltages of the devices decreased as the MeOH content was increased from 0 to 30 % (v/v); however, the device changed from being unrewritable to rewritable if the MeOH content was increased to 40 %; a probable mechanism for this process is discussed. It is hoped that this new idea of synthesizing narrow polydispersity index pendant polymers, and the fabrication of high-quality films through the use of a mixture of solvents could allow high-performance memory devices to be prepared in the future.
