We synthesized 3-dithiolthione-substituted polythiophene, poly[3-(1′,2′-dithiol-3′-thione-4′-yl)thiophene], by cyclization reaction of poly[3-bis(methoxycaronyl)methyl thiophene]. Its redox behavior and electronic states showed that the oxidation of the polythiophene followed the oxidation of the dithiolthione ring to the radical cation of the dithiolthione ring.
