Abstract: This manuscript investigates the use of arylnickel complexes for the synthesis of functionalized conjugated polymers is. The scope of the catalyst-transfer polycondensation of poly(3-alkylthiophene) using nickel was expanded by functionalizing and isolating the nickel initiator. o-Methyl substituted arylnickel complexes were isolated and used to initiate the polymerization of various substituted poly(thiophene)s and poly(p-phenylene). Finally, the living nature of the polymerization of poly(3-alkylthiophene) was exploited to prepare a polymer with two different end-groups – one arising from the Ni-initiator and one from the end-capper.
