Abstract

σ-Conjugated polymers (polysilanes and polygermanes) have been the subject of considerable interest in recent years because of their unique physical and chemical properties. Electrochemical reduction of dihalogeno-silanes and -germanes is one of the best pathways to the polymers. However, only relatively small molecular weight polymers are obtained by electrochemical method compared to those obtained by Wurtz-type coupling reaction.
