Poly-acetylenes

General methods for the synthesis of a wide range of hitherto unknown or inaccessible poly-acetylenic compounds (i.e. compounds containing a number of acetylenic bonds in conjugation) have been developed and a number of such compounds, containing up to six triple bonds in conjugation, have been synthesised. Since acetylenic and poly-acetylenic compounds continue to be isolated from natural sources, some attention has been given to the synthesis of model compounds as an aid to the elucidation of their structure. The poly-acetylenes are proving to be of fundamental interest to the theoretician and to the physical chemist. Infra-red and ultra-violet light absorption data have been obtained for a large variety of related compounds and are discussed, along with the data concerning other remarkable properties of these interesting substances.
