We have attempted to synthesize water-soluble poly(para-phenylene) derivative, poly{[2,5-bis(3-sulfonatobutoxy)-1,4-phenylene sodium salt]-alt-(1,4-phenylene)} (PPP-SO 3). Aldehyde groups, versatile functional intermediate groups for immobilization of biomolecules, were introduced at both ends of PPP-SO 3 chain to produce PPP-SO 3 -CHO. PPP-SO 3 -CHO showed good solubility in aqueous solution and blue emission color, which was expected as an energy donor in FRET mechanism. Biotin was attached to the polymer end groups via imine linkage to use as a ligand for streptavidin immobilization. The biotin coupled with polymer chain enables the polymer to bind with FITC-streptavidin leading to energy transfer from the blue-emitting polymer to green-emitting FITC via FRET.
