A novel tetrathiafulvalene (TTF)-based main-chain polymer (6TTF-polymer) was successfully synthesized via a condensation polymerization between a newly synthesized dihydroxy TTF derivative and a malonyl chloride, and its chemical structure was characterized by spectroscopic techniques. Molecular weight of the 6TTFpolymer (9,030 g/mol by gel permeation chromatography) was large enough to form the ductile film. The electrochemical and optical properties of the 6TTF-polymer were further estimated by cyclic voltammetry, ultraviolet and photoluminescence spectroscopes. The highest occupied molecular orbital level (EHOMO = −4.79 eV) and band-gap energy (Eg = 1.91 eV) of the 6TTF-polymer suggested that TTF-based polymer could act as a good electron donating material for the optoelectronic applications.
