Cover: A novel rigid poly(aryleneethynylene) with side-fused tetrathiafulvalene (P-TTF) unit has been synthesized. The cover shows that the coplanarity of the main chain and the TTF side chains leads to good π–π stacking in the solid state. The self-assembly and reversible electroactive properties indicate that this kind of TTF-fused polymer may become a promising active material for organic electronic applications.
