Prof. Sheridan's research involves the design and synthesis of
metal-containing polymers linked via -conjugated organic/inorganic bridges.
Specifically we have used hydrosilylation to prepare polymers containing
silylene, phenylenevinylene or thienylenevinylene groups and ferrocene and
troticene groups in the polymer backbone. The strategy is outlined in the
schemes in the link below, and polymerization is achieved via hydrosilylation
of dialkynes with metal-containing disilane monomers.
