The light fantastic: The first examples of soluble high-molecular-weight d10 mercury(II) polyyne copolymers incorporating a 9,9-dialkylfluorene moiety have been prepared and photophysically characterized (see picture). These polymers have been shown to utilize a heavy-atom effect in exhibiting strong phosphorescence.
