The acidic methyl protons of 4,6-dimethylpyrimidines can be easily deprotonated with a base to generate a resonance stabilized carbanion which can be used as a substrate for aldol condensation reactions. A series of novel conjugated polymers were synthesized by the aldol condensation reaction of 2-decyloxy-4,6-dimethylpyrimidine with various aromatic dialdehydes.
