It was demonstrated that a series of copolymers consisting of 1,4-phenyle-nevinylene (PV) and 1,4-phenylene-1,2-ethanediyl (PE) units could be prepared from a single monomer, p-(methoxymethyl)benzyl chloride, via the chemical vapor deposition polymerization (CVDP) method. The composition of the copolymers could be varied simply by altering the monomer activation temperature. The higher the temperature, the lower the content of the PV unit. The photo (PL)- and electroluminescence (EL) properties of the copolymers that revealed a blueshift when compared with PPV strongly depend on the amount of the PE units incorporated. The external quantum efficiencies of the electroluminescence devices having the configuration of ITO/PEDOT-PSS/copolymer/ Al-Li were higher than that of PPV, which can be ascribed to the improved confinement of excitons.
