We report on the preparation and characterization of conjugated polymers based on the thiazole ring: polythiazole and polythiazolothiazole. Our aim is to help in clarifying the role of the heteroatom in the conduction pathway by inserting nitrogen atoms within the polythiophene backbone. We also discuss the results of Valence Effective Hamiltonian calculations on two stereoregular models of polythiazole.
