Dehalogenative polycondensation of 1,2-dibromoethylene, trans-1,2-dichloroethylene, and cis-1,2-dichloroethylene with a Ni(0) complex gave a black polymer whose IR spectrum essentially agreed with that of trans-polyacetylene. Suzuki-Miyaura coupling between 1,2-dibromoethylene and vinylene diboronic compounds was applied to synthesis of π-conjugated polymers.
