      In this communication, we report the synthesis and characterization of a new donor–acceptor type conjugated polymer carrying alternate 3,4-didodecyloxythiophene and (1,3,4-oxadiazol-yl)pyridine moieties and evaluation of its optical and electrochemical properties. The polymer was synthesized through precursor polyhydrazide route. It has well defined structure, stability and it shows good solubility in common organic solvents. Optical and electrochemical properties were studied by UV-visible, fluorescence spectroscopy and cyclic voltammetric studies, respectively. It displays bluish-green fluorescence both in solution and in film state. Cyclic voltammetric studies showed that the polymer P1 possesses a HOMO energy level of −6.01 and LUMO energy level of −3.34 eV. The preliminary studies clearly reveal that the new polymer can have potential application in the fabrication of light emitting diodes. The studies on its device application are in progress.
