Abstract

A dynamic combinatorial approach for the synthesis of arylene ethynylene macrocycles (AEMs) from linear polymers is described. By using readily available carbazolyl-ethynylene copolymers as starting materials we obtained a number of novel macrocycles that would be difficult to prepare by traditional methods.
