Metal contg. polymers have been considerably investigated in recent years due to their wide range of potential applications (i.e. solar cell technologies). An aspect of major importance in this research field is the incorporation of suitable chelating ligands into the polymer chains in order to achieve the complexation of different transition metal cations into the polymer chains. Among the most used metal-complexing ligands for these purposes are terpyridines moieties, which can self-assemble with different transition metal ions in order to form complex supramol. polymer architectures. In this work, the synthesis of terpyridine-functionalized star-shaped polymers utilizing the "arms-first" approach via anionic polymn. is addressed. Furthermore, the different synthetic approaches that have been proposed by scientist to achieve the incorporation of chelating ligands into the polymer chains are discussed. [on SciFinder (R)]
