Photosensitive silicon-containing poly(salicylideneazomethynes) have been synthesized. It has been shown that these polymers are characterized by the presence of intramolecular donor-acceptor interactions between valence shells of silicon and nitrogen atoms; as a result, polyconjugation appears according to the nonclassical mechanism. The photo-and electrophysical properties of the polymers have been examined. The introduction of an oxygen spacer into a polymer facilitates an increase in the photosensitivity and quantum yield of free charge carrier photogeneration, and it has almost no effect on the conductive behavior of the polymers.
