TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

This invention is a process to cheaply produce polythiophenes in a monomer-by-monomer, stepwise fashion. The process gives unprecedented control over molecular weight (MW) and eliminates laborious post-synthesis purification. Additionally, the control over polymer structure will assist in optimizing solar harvesting efficiency, electronic device characteristics, and processing properties.
