Abstract

New [2.2]paracyclophane-based through-space conjugated polymers containing fluorescence quenchers such as anthraquinone and ferrocene units at the polymer termini were designed and synthesized. Their optical properties were investigated in detail. Fluorescence emission from the stacked π-electron systems was effectively quenched by the stacked π-electron systems at the polymer termini due to the energy and electron transfer through a single polymer chain; thus, the polymers acted as the molecular wire. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
