Abstract
This work presents a combined theoretical and experimental study of poly(3-thiophene-3-yl acrylic acid), a new polythiophene derivative soluble in polar solvents. Quantum chemical calculations on small oligomers were performed to propose a structural model for this polymer. Specifically, the minimum energy conformations and the rotational profiles of the different isomeric derivatives constructed for a model system formed by two monomeric units were calculated. The resulting model, which shows h...
