The characterization of polyazulenes is reported with regard to two main aspects. First, results of circular dichroism spectroelectrochemistry of a carbohydrate-modified azulene indicate that structural reorganization and chiroptical switching occur on oxidative doping. Second, the investigation of phenylene/azulene polymeric films with meta- or para-phenylenes as bridging units provides information about electron transport and shows that phenylenic bridging allows structurally separated electron-transfer-active subunits to be created within the polymeric chain.
