Abstract

A convenient, mild prepn. of poly(2,5-dibutoxy-1,4-phenylenevinylene) (I) using a modified precursor route is reported. The conversion of the methoxy pendent precursor polymer into its conjugated form is performed in chloroform by the elimination of methanol at room temp., yielding I as a red soln. The elimination is catalyzed by the acid photoproducts of chloroform. [on SciFinder (R)]
