All-carbon ladder polymers with extended π systems are of interest for electroluminescence and photovoltaics applications. The synthesis of two new ladder polymers (e.g. see Figure) exhibiting relatively high molecular weights and pronounced film-forming abilities, is reported. It is also shown that the degree of saturation in these polymers can be chemically closly controlled.
