The temperature dependence of the conductivity of the crystalline polymerized dimer of 1,11-dodecadiyne has been measured, and indicates that the material is a semiconductor with an energy gap of about 0.36 eV. A band-structure calculation for the polyacetylenelike chains in this crystal supports this conclusion.
