W.-Y. Wong, A. B. Djurisic and coworkers report on the synthesis and characterization of two soluble, luminescent bithiazole-linked platinum(II) polyyne polymers that are suitable candidates for the construction of polymer light-emitting devices (PLEDs). Both polymers were found to be thermally stable over 340 °C. Furthermore, their good solubility in common organic solvents makes them suitable for solution processing, which is essential for a wide range of device applications.
