Miyaura-Suzuki type polycondensation with no use of n-BuLi for preparation of precursors was carried out to obtain a series of p-conjugated materials having multi-functionality. Bully substituent in the monomer restricts propagation in the polycondensation to give high molecular weight products. Although the products thus obtained show low molecular weight, the resultant materials show good optical absorption and fluorescence.
