Abstract

The authors report the results of a study of poly[ethynylene-(3-n-butyl-2,5-thiophenediyl)ethynylene] and related oligomers and polymers: preparation of these diacetylenic oligomers and polymers in soluble form, conversion of the oligomers to hypercross-linked organic solids with high carbon content, and characterization of these solids. It is shown that the solubility, Young's modulus and thermal stability of poly[ethynylene(3-n-butyl-2,5-thiophenediyl)-ethynylene] and related oligomers and polymers provide an attractive system for the exploration of the properties of hypercross-linked solids.
