Poly(2,5-thienylene vinylene) (PTV), an insoluble conjugated polymer, can be readily prepared in various shapes of different nanodimensions by the chemical vapor deposition polymerization of 2,5-bis(chloromethyl)thiophene. The bischloromethyl monomer in the vapor phase is activated at 600°C. The activated monomer vapor is deposited at room temperature on the surface of various substrates to prepare polymeric films, fibers, tubes etc., which are then thermally converted into PTV. PTV thin films can be carbonized thermally to produce graphitic compositions that contain sulfur atoms. Electrical conductivities of FeCl4--doped PTV and carbonized films are reported.
