Excited-States in Polymers of Different Dimerization
Investigations of the excited states of a planar poly(para-phenylene)-type ladder polymer are presented. In this system dimerization due to ring rotation angles is completely suppressed. We compare these results to investigations on poly(para-phenylene) and poly(para-phenylenevinylene).
