Abstract

We evaluate at the ab initio level the electronic and geometric structures and the microscopic electrical polarizabilities of polyarylene vinylene compounds such as polyparaphenylene vinylene, polythiophene vinylene, and polypyrrole vinylene. Related fused-ring structures based on isothianaphthene and thieno[3, 4-c]thiophene and their vinylene derivatives, are also investigated.
