Bulk response: Following the development of conjugated polymers that sense ions or neutral molecules, the first π-conjugated polymer which is capable of detecting elemental chalcogens is presented. Individual reactions at the phosphole moieties (see picture) result in macroscopic responses of the bulk polymer.
