  • A. Y. Bushueva
  • E. V. Shklyaeva

In this review methods for the synthesis of substituted 2,5-di(2-thienyl)pyrroles are described, and various aspects of their application are discussed. The main emphasis is on the electrochemical behavior of the compounds, the possibility of their electrochemical polymerization, and their use as monomers for the production of conducting polymers – components for molecular electronics.
