Title: Soluble silylated polyacetylene derivatives, their preparation and their use as precursors to novel polyacetylene-type polymers

Abstract

Polymerization of acetylenic monomers is achieved by using a catalyst which is the reaction product of a tungsten compound and a reducing agent effective to reduce W(VI) to W(III and/or IV), e.g., WCl/sub 6/ x (organo-Li, organo-Mg or polysilanes). The resultant silylated polymers are of heretofore unachievable, high molecular weight and can be used as precursors to a wide variety of new acetylenic polymers by application of substitution reactions. They can be used as electrodes in batteries.
