Abstract

This thesis describes the synthesis of a new electropolymerizable viologen derivative. A reasonably high-yielding route is reported, and a preliminary investigation of its polymerisation is described. The viologen and its precursors were examined by 1H NMR, MS, IR and elemental analysis. The energies of the band gap for the materials have been calculated using UV-vis spectroscopy, and cyclic voltammetry was also used to estimate the oxidation and the reduction potentials and to calculate the HOMO and LUMO energies. Theoretical calculations were performed using DFT. The attempted synthesis of a new flavin-functionalised phenanthroline derivative is described. Unfortunately, the protocol used failed to provide the desired compounds.
