    ABSTRACT: Three new polymers, poly(m-iodophenylacetylene), poly(p-iodophenylacetylene) and poly[p(trilsopropylsilylethynyl)phenylacetylene], were prepared and their photoelectrical properties were studied. The experimental results suggest that the photogeneration of charge carriers in these polymers proceeds via the creation of Intermediate Coulomb force bound charge pairs and their subsequent dissociation in the external electric field by the Onsager mechanism. The electron-withdrawing and electron-donating groups attached to the phenyl ring were found to influence the photogeneration process substantially.

    ABSTRACT: Exclusive, high-yield formation of the cyclotrimers of ethynylferrocene ( 1 ) was observed when TaCl<sub>5</sub> in benzene was employed as catalyst. Analysis of the resulting isomer mixture by means of HPLC and <sup>1</sup>H NMR revealed the presence of 1,3,5-triferrocenylbenzene ( sym -2 ) and 1,2,4-triferrocenylbenzene ( asym -2 ) in the ratio of 4 : 6. A small amount of pure sym -2 isomer was isolated, and its solid-state structure was established by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The molecules of sym -2 possess a distorted up-up-down arrangement of the ferrocenyl groups attached to the benzene ring.

    ABSTRACT: New functional acetylene, 1-ethynyl-4-iodobenzene, (p-iodophenylacetylene) was prepared, characterized (i.r., n.m.r., u.v. and mass spectra) and transformed into high-molecular-weight polymers. Various WOCl4-based and MoCl5-based catalysts were used in the polymerization, the former leading to the red soluble and the latter to dark red insoluble poly(p-iodophenylacetylene) (PIPA), respectively. Both types of PIPA are non-crystalline and they differ in the configurational structure which, however, could not be assigned with certainty. A too high molecular weight and/or cross-linking is suggested as a reason of insolubility of PIPA prepared on Mo-based catalysts. The soluble PIPA was found to degrade autoxidatively in tetrahydrofuran solution at room temperature obeying the kinetic laws of polymer random degradation. The determined value of the rate constant of degradation, 2.6 × 10−6 min−1, is slightly higher than that found for unsubstituted poly(phenylacetylene) (PPA), under the same conditions. PIPA was found to possess a higher photo-conductivity than PPA at low and moderate electric fields. The Onsager model offers an adequate explanation for the measured dependence of the photogeneration efficiency of the applied electric field assuming the Gaussian distribution of the radii of charge-transfer states.
