... Although the primary focus of my research project was on the synthesis and characterization of α,ω-dithienylpolyenes as model structures for the study of the copolymer related to the PT+PA structure, several other potential aryl and heterocyclic polyene systems were investigated. The investigations include attempted preparations of conjugated aldehydes for utilization in the synthesis of the 4-nitrophenyl, 2-pyridyl, and 3-pyridyl polyene systems. The results, both positive and negative, of these investigations will also be presented in the Discussion section.
