Design of Novel Conjugated Polymer Poly(cyclopenta-1,3-Diene)
A novel linear conjugated polymer, poly(cyclopenta-1,3-diene), is designed. The electronic structures of poly(cyclopenta-1,3-diene) is calculated with extended Hückel tight binding program. The calculated band gap of the polymer is about 1.1 eV, which suggests this kind of conjugated polymer can be used in infrared optoelectronic devices.
