Abstract

Organometallic polymers have potential applications in opto-electronics but full understanding and utilisation of their properties requires knowledge of the polymer structure and possible structural defects. In this work we present a summary of results obtained using high resolution electron microscopy (HREM) and a variety of low dose techniques in order to obtain lattice images of a well crystallised, beam sensitive Pt-containing poly-yne. Many details of the unit cell and of typical lattice defects have been obtained via HREM on a polymer system for which single crystal x-ray diffractometry has proved impossible.
