Preparation of a series of oligo[thiophene-2,5-diyl]vinylenes (3) is reported. Compounds containing an even number of thiopehene rings were synthesized by the carbonyl coupling of thiophenecarbaldehydes with a low-valent titanium reagent and those carrying an odd number of thiophene rings by the coupling of thiophenecarbaldehydes with Wittig-Horner (Wittig) reagents. Uv-vis spectral feature of these compounds is also reported.
