  • Patent number: 9527963
    Abstract: A process of dissolving 3-fluoro-4,6-dihydrothieno[3,4-b]thiophene in a solvent to create a solution. An initiator is then added to the solution to produce an initiated solution followed by adding a fluorinated chemical to the initiated solution to produce 2,3-difluoro-4,6-dihydrothieno[3,4-b]thiophene. 2,3-difluoro-4,6-dihydrothieno[3,4-b]thiophene is then oxidized with an oxidant to produce 2,3-difluorothieno[3,4-b]thiophene. A brominating step then occurs to the 2,3-difluorothieno[3,4-b]thiophene to produce 4,6-dibromo-2,3-difluorothieno[2,3-c]thiophene 4,6-dibromo-2,3-difluorothieno[2,3-c]thiophene is then debrominated and polymerized to The stoichiometric ratio of (f+g)?h and f, g and h are not equal to 0. Additionally, in this embodiment R1, R2, R3 and R4 are independently selected from the group consisting of alkyl group, alkoxy group, aryl groups and combinations thereof and where the combination of R1, R2, R3 and R4 are not all identical.

  • Patent number: 9278980
    Abstract: A method of producing a monomer wherein the method begins by dissolving 3-fluoro-4,6 dihydrothieno[3,4-b]thiophene in a solvent to create a solution. An initiator is then added to the solution to produce an initiated solution. This is followed by adding a fluorinated chemical to the initiated solution to produce 2,3-difluoro-4,6-dihydrothieno[3,4-b]thiophene. 2,3-difluoro-4,6-dihydrothieno[3,4-b]thiophene is then oxidized with an oxidant to produce 2,3-difluorothieno[3,4-b]thiophene. 2,3-difluorothieno[3,4-b]thiophene is then bromoated to produce 4,6-dibromo-2,3-difluorothieno[2,3-c]thiophene.
