Straightforward Aryne Polymerization: Synthesis of Poly(ortho -arylene)s

  Uchiyama et al. have reported the first straightforward aryne polymerization that connects aromatic rings at their ortho-positions to give poly(ortho -arylene)s of up to ca. 100-mer size. They use 4,5-dimethoxy-2-(trimethylsilyl)phenyl trifluoromethanesulfonate as an aryne precursor and CuCN as a crucial initiator in the polymerization. In this report, they demonstrate that the polymerization proceeds in chain-growth fashion, not through step growth because the molecular weight of the poly(ortho -arylene)s are modulated by the initiator amount. In addition, they presume the reaction pathway of this polymerization by means of density functional theory (DFT) calculations.

Product Highlight

A Silylborane Derivative Usable for Transition-Metal-Free Borylation

  2-(Dimethylphenylsilyl)-4,4,5,5-tetramethyl-1,3,2-dioxaborolane (1) is a silylborane and it reacts with various aryl, alkenyl and alkyl bromides under the influence of potassium methoxide to afford the corresponding borates. In this reaction, various aryl bromides with a functional group such as a chloro, fluoro, ester or amide group can react with 1 and the bromo group is selectively substituted for the (pinacolato)boryl group. This reaction is also applicable to the substances having an allyl group because it has no need for any palladium catalyst which may remove allyl groups. Furthermore, in a case using very bulky alkyl groups such as 2, the reaction proceeds and the related boryl group substituted product is given in good yield even though it is generally difficult to introduce by conventional synthetic methods.
  This reaction is a transition-metal-free reaction and environmentally benign. The given borates can be directly used for the Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reaction.
