In this project a number of synthetic procedures were investigated with a view to preparing a new type of charge transfer polymer system having a structure based on that of side chain liquid crystal polymers, in that the hoped for polymer was composed of charge transfer acceptors connected to a polymer backbone via a flexible alkyl spacer linkage. As part of this work new charge transfer complexes were prepared some of which have shown possible novel properties, such as, co-operative magnetic effects and film forming capabilities. Finally, in order to characterise materials prepared, a Faraday magnetic susceptibility balance and instrumentation for measuring electrical conductivity has been built.
