Abstract: The thermal elimination of the n-octyl-sulphonyl group from poly[1,4 phenylene (1-n-octyl-sulphonyl)-1,2-ethylene] and the phenyl-sulphonyl group from poly[1,4 phenylene (1-phenyl-sulphonyl)-1,2-ethylene] is evaluated by different analytical techniques: thermal gravimetric analysis, direct insert probe mass spectrometry, in situ ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy and in situ Fourier transform infra red spectroscopy. This thermal treatment yields PPV with improved optical properties compared to the conventional PPV concerning UV-absorption and photoluminescence efficiencies. The results obtained are consistent with the formation of a PPV with a more or less restricted conjugation length compared to the PPV material obtained from the conversion of a sulphinyl precursor polymer.
