Abstract: Using organometallic catalysts, two types of polymers containing conjugated moiety and insulating linker are synthesized. The investigations on the photophysical properties of these polymers (photoluminescence, electroluminescence and nonlinear optical properties) are briefly summarized. These polymers represent a new class of materials for optoelectronic interests.
