    Abstract

    Polymers with p-phenylene-2,5-pyrrole or p-phenylene-2,5-thiophene repeat units were prepd. by reaction of terephthalaldehyde and the bis-Mannich base of 1,4-diacetylbenzene (Stetter reaction), followed by heterocyclic ring closure with ammonia or Lawesson's reagent, resp. The polymers exhibited elec. cond. ?0.1 S.cm-1 upon doping with I or AsF5. [on SciFinder (R)]
