Displacement of the terminal chloro groups of diiron arene complexes with 1-naphthol led to the formation of the corresponding complex with terminal naphthoxy groups. Photolytic demetallation of these complexes produced the monomeric blocks in good yields. Scholl polymn. was implemented leading to the formation of polyarom. ethers and thioethers. The polymn. of various monomers has proven to be time and concn. dependent. [on SciFinder(R)]
