Abstract

Conjugated polymers prepared by the thermal transformation of a precursor polymer can be produced as highly oriented films if the transformation reaction is carried out in a stress field. Investigation of the anisotropic properties of such films has given much information on the microscopic electronic processes which determine the behaviour of these polymers. We report here on the structural characterisation of oriented poly(phenylenevinylene) [PPV] and Durham-route polyacetylene [(CH)x] using X-ray diffraction and infrared spectroscopy. © 1987.
