Abstract

4,4′-Bis[2-(2-phenylethynyl)-3-thienyl]biphenyl, 4,4′-bis[2-{2-(trimethylsilyl)ethynyl}-3-thienyl]biphenyl and their congeners were prepared and their properties were studied. Extension of π-system through the central benzene ring was suggested by UV-vis spectra. Connection of two 1,4-bis[2-{2-(trimethylsilyl)ethynyl}-3-thienyl]benzene units was exemplified.
