Research Initiatives

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.
