The unexpectedly challenging synthesis of 4-pyridyl-extended dithienophospholes is reported. The optical and electrochemical properties of the phosphoryl-bridged species were studied experimentally and computationally, and their properties compared to their non-P-bridged congeners. The 4-pyridyl-extended dithieno-phospholes display quantitative luminescence quantum yields in solution.
