2,5-Bis(chloromethyl)triphenylamine 1 was prepared and polymerized via the Gilch reaction to give poly(2-diphenylamino-1,4-phenylenevinylene) 2G as a solvent-soluble Φ-conjugated polymer. 1 was also polymerized via the chemical vapor deposition to yield the precursor polymer of 2C, which was heated under vacuum to yield a yellow or brown thin film of 2C on substrates such as glass and a silicon wafer. Spectroscopies of the film supported the formation of the poly (2-diphenylamino-1,4-phenylenevinylene) 2C. The arylamine moiety of the 2C film worked as a functional group like a redox site.
