Abstract

The specialized-performance polymers poly(arylene-1,3-oxadiazole)s—see Figure for an example—have high-value end uses based on their electronic, optical, and thermal properties. The syntheses, solid-state structure, properties, and applications of poly(arylene-1,3,4-oxadiazole)s are reviewed.
