Disubstituted cycloimmonium ylides derived from the 4,4’-bipyridine with one, two or four ylidic systems in their molecular structure are described as stable compounds. Synthesis of some bridged 1,1’-disubstituted 4,4’-bipyridinium dimethylides in which 1,4- or 1,3-phenylene spacers may be used, provide some new macromolecular cycloimmonium ylides with spatially extended π-bonding system. These compounds were obtained by the chemical conversion of 4,4’-bipyridinium salts as viologens or bis-viologens, with acylating or carbamoylating agents, in basic media. The characterisation of all compounds has been mainly performed by 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy.
