Abstract: In recent years, design and synthesis of conjugated polymers attracted attention due to their interesting optical, electrochemical, and electrical properties, which lead to the fabrication of optoelectronic and electronic devices, photovoltaic cells, chemical and biosensors. The present work reports on syntheses and fine-tuning the emission properties of a series of new amphiphilic poly(p-phenylene)s (PPPs) containing free hydroxyl groups and hydrogen bond acceptor groups such as nitrogen atoms on polymer back bone capable of forming an inter/intra molecular hydrogen bonding. All the new amphiphilic conjugated polymers were prepared in good yields using the Suzuki coupling reaction. All polymers showed good solubility in common organic solvents. The optical properties of these novel polymers were studied. The characterization of these polymers suggested that they were promising candidates for application in polymeric light emitting diode (PLED), nonlinear optical properties (NLO), sensors for metal ions, catalytic studies and other properties.
