Syntheses of donor-acceptor-donor type of pi-conjugated monomers were performed to examine the effect of the acceptor units' strength on the electrochemical and optoelectrochemical properties of the resulting monomer and polymer. Palladium catalyzed Stille cross-coupling reaction of an organotin reagent with an organic electrophile was used for the synthesis of target monomers, 5,8-bis(4-hexylthiophen-2-yl)-2-(2,3-dihydrobenzo[b][1,4]clioxin-6-y1)-3-(2,3-dihydrobenzo[b][1,41dioxin-7-yl)quinoxaline (DBQHT) and 10,13-bis(4-hexylthiophen-2-yl)dibenzo[a,c]phenazine (PHEHT).
