In this study, poly(azomethine)s with cresol and pyrrole as side chain units were synthesized in three steps. In the first step; symmetrical dialdehyde bromide (DAB), in the second step; symmetrical derivatives (DAB-1 and DAB-2) of DAB using p-cresol and pyrrole, respectively, and in the third step; poly(azomethine-cresol) (P-1) and poly(azomethine-pyrrole) (P-2) were obtained via condensation reaction. Structures of all synthesized compounds were confirmed by FT-IR, UV-Vis, and 1H NMR spectroscopic analyses. Photophysical and electrochemical properties of these compounds were investigated using photoluminescence (PL) and cyclic voltammetry (CV) measurements, respectively. Based on photoluminescence analysis, the multicolor properties of DAB-2, P-1 and P-2 were observed in DMF solution. Additionally, results of thermal studies of TG-DTA and DSC techniques showed they were thermally stable compounds.
