A series of novel quinoxaline-based conjugated polymers which contain a ruthenium(II) bipyridine complex were synthesized by the Suzuki coupling reaction. UV/VIS spectroscopy showed that the spectral features of the polymers are dependent on the amount of metal complex present. Results from excitation and emission spectroscopy suggest an energy transfer between the backbone and the metal complex. The polymers exhibit hole carrier mobilities of ≈ 10-5cm2· V-1· s-1, which is comparable to organic photoconductors.
