Au cours des 15 dernières années, le développement de nouveaux polymères conjugués possédant des propriétés de chromisme nous ont menés au design rationnel de nouveaux biocapteurs optiques ou électrochimiques. Dans ce domaine, nous avons acquis un leadership international qui se traduit par de nombreuses conférences invitées, des revues de littérature et des chapitres de livres. De récentes optimisations nous ont menées à la détection de moins de 20 copies de matériel génétique.

J.F. Morin and M. Leclerc, «Syntheses of Conjugated Polymers Derived From N-alkyl-2,7-carbazoles», Macromolecules, 34, 4680-4682 (2001).

Notre travail de synthèse sur les polymères conjugués ont mené au développement d’une toute nouvelle famille de polymères conjugués, les dérivés du poly(2,7-carbazole). Cette nouvelle famille polymères électroactifs et photoactifs est prometteuse et a ouvert la voie à de nouveaux domaines de recherche : les diodes électroluminescentes, les dispositifs thermoélectriques, les cellules photovoltaïques et les transistors. Plus particulièrement, cette nouvelle classe de polymères conjugués a permis le développement de matériaux électroluminescents qui couvrent tout le domaine du visible. Cette brillante réussite a été soulignée dans chemistry.org (ACS), Heart Cut, le 28 octobre 2002. Nous avons été invités à présenter nos travaux à Boston (ACS meeting, automne 2002). Nous avons également été invités à écrire une revue de littérature pour le compte de Macromolecular Rapid Communications (2005).

(2,7-fluorene) Derivatives: Photoluminescence and Base-Doping»,
Macromolecules 30, 7686-7691 (1997).

Pour la première fois, nous avons rapporté la synthèse de polymères conjugués parfaitement alternés dérivés du fluorène en utilisant le couplage de Suzuki. Cette publication a ouvert la voie à une nouvelle classe de polymères conducteurs et électroluminescents. Cette importante publication a été citée, jusqu’à présent, 288 fois. Ce travail de pionnier a mené à plusieurs études d’électroluminescence et de conductivité électronique de dérivés de polyfluorènes en utilisant le base-doping. Nos travaux sur les polyfluorènes ont fait l’objet d’une revue de littérature publiée dans Journal of Polymer Science, Chemistry Edition (2001).
