Usually, linear π-conjugated systems like phenylenevinylene and thiophene oligomers and polymers are used as organic component in (opto)electronic devices. However, as shown in this lecture alternative modes of conjugation can also form the basis for attractive electronic and optoelectronic features. This is demonstrated by σ-π conjugated oligo(cyclohexylidenes) and compounds incorporating the cross-conjugated 1,1-diphenylethene motif. In particular conjugation, photoinduced charge separation and charge transport in molecular junctions are discussed.
