A series of three polymerizable oligo phenylene ethynylenes on the basis of substituted methacrylates was synthesized and subsequently polymerized. The optical behavior of all three monomer units was tuned by the choice of the substituents on the conjugated side chains. The donor and acceptor group containing polymers showed resonant energy transfer from the donor to the acceptor groups.
