New polyacrylates bearing an electropolymerizable bi or terthiophene group have been synthesized via classical radical polymerization and via RAFT process. Polymerizations can be controlled if thiophene moieties have protected a positions; otherwise polymerization is difficult or impossible. Cross-linked polymers can be obtained after film electropolymerizations on different electrodes (gold, carbon and platinum).
