Rieke Metals strives to be innovative and responsive to market demands in the Material Science industry. With that mindset Rieke Metals is pleased to add the following polymers to our product portfolio:
These new conjugated polymers have glycol side chains with improved solubility and different electrical properties vs traditional P3HT. These polymers are very attractive due to their processability, mechanical flexibility, and ease of production. Polythiophenes continue to be used in traditional applications like organic light emitting diodes, organic thin film transistors, and organic photovoltaics.
More recently conjugated polythiophenes have been used in battery technology, biotechnology, electrochromic films and thermoelectronic applications. These specific polythiophenes, such as P3MEEMT, would be ideal for use in fabrication of porous polymer electrodes for solar fuel production and as mixed ionic-electronic conductors. Mixed conductors can be used for applications including bioelectronics, neuromorphic computing, and energy storage.
