Abstract: Novel organosoluble fluorescent polynorbornenes with multi-functional armed structure were designed and prepared by using highly stable block macroinitiators via a combination of living ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP) and atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP). A bromo-containing functional norbornene (NBMBr) was prepared from the Diels-Alder reaction of cyclopentadiene and allyl bromide. The diblock copolymer of 5-(N-carbazolyl methyl)bicycle[2.2.1]hept-2-ene (CbzNB) and NBMBr was successfully prepared using living ROMP and used as a novel macroinitiator [poly(CbzNB-b-NBMBr)] for ATRP. Carbazoyl-containing multi-functional armed copolymer with poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) was prepared by using poly(CbzNB-b-NBMBr) as a macroinitiator for ATRP. Strong fluorescence emissions (370-450 nm) were observed in the low excimer-forming multi-functional armed fluorescent polynorbornenes. The fact is that low excimer-forming carbazole-containing polymeric compound would apparently be favorable in photoconductive materials. The multi-functional armed structure make this compound an attractive candidate for applications as multi-modified hole transport materials in molecular electronic devices. Multi-modification could be further considered to be carried out by using such a functional bromo group at the end of multi-arms. © 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
