Abstract

A simple procedure for microstructuring conjugated, rod-like polymers is described. The fact that linear rigid-rod polymers form highly ordered arrays of holes under most trivial experimental conditions convincingly refutes the notion that either highly branched or coiled structural segments are necessary to generate these arrays.
