1. The thermal and catalytic polymerization of dimethylbutadiyne leads to polymers that are readily oxidized by atmospheric oxygen. 2. As a result of polymerization, a block copolymer is formed, containing fragments of a substituted polyene and polyacene, together with a small amount of double bonds of the basic chain, isomerized into the side chain. 3. The insolubility of the thermal polymer is apparently due to the formation of a three-dimensional structure during synthesis, while for the catalytic polymer this apparently occurs at the stage of its treatment.
