AbstractWe report here the synthesis of some new poly(2,5-dialkoxy-1,4-phenylenevinylene)s. By varying the length of the side chain of one of the alkoxy groups, polymers with similar physical but different rheological characteristics were produced. If a short side chain was incorporated, a brittle polymer resulted; a longer side chain resulted in a softer polymer, but one that produced better quality thin films.
