Mono and di allyl and napthyl substituted 3,4-propylenedioxythiophenes were synthesized and polymerized electrochemically. All the monomers were characterized for their molecular structures, and the polymers were characterized for their electrochemical properties. The disubstituted derivatives showed higher contrast than the corresponding mono substituted derivatives. The allyl substituted polymers showed higher contrast and faster switching time than corresponding napthyl substituted derivatives. The presence of the allyl group as the pendant can be used for further functionalization of the polymer.
