A novel alkoxy-bridged dithieno (3, 2-B:2',3'-D) pyrrole (DTP) derivative was synthesized and its corresponding polymer poly(1,2-bis(2-(4H-dithieno[3,2-b:2',3'-d]pyrrol-4-yl)ethoxy)ethane) (P(DTP-alkoxy-DTP)) was successfully obtained electrochemically. The effects of alkoxy bridge in the structure on the electrochemical and spectroelectro-chemical properties of the polymer were also investigated in detail. The results showed that the polymer film exhibits multielectrochromic behavior and a low band gap of 1.82 eV.
