A polythiophene derivative substituted with the electron-rich alkynes was subjected to the “click chemistry”-type postfunctionalization by high-yielding TCNE/TCNQ additions. UV–vis–NIR spectra and electrochemical measurements suggested the formation of donor–acceptor chromophores in quantitative yields. As more acceptor molecules were added, both HOMO and LUMO levels of the polymers were more significantly lowered.
