AbstractWe report measurements of electron and X-ray diffraction on highly oriented films of poly(p-phenylene vinylene), PPV and poly(2,5-dimethoxy phenylene vinylene), DMPPV. We find that DMPPV shows very much better translational ordering than PPV, and we consider that this is due to the locking of the methoxy side-groups on adjacent chains.
