Description

Application

1,6-Dibromohexane is generally used to introduce C6 spacer in the molecular architecture. Some of the examples are:
• Synthesis of solvent processable and conductive polyfluorene ionomers for alkaline fuel cell applications.
• Synthesis of cross-linkable regioregular poly(3-(5-hexenyl)thiophene) (P3HNT) for stabilizing the film morphology in polymer photovoltaic cells.
• Synthesis of pyrrolo-tetrathiafulvalene molecular bridge (6PTTF6) to study redox switching behavior of single molecules.
• Synthesis of water-soluble thermoresponsive polylactides.

Packaging
