Abstract The electronic structure of an infinite one-dimensional polyene chain bearing periodically arranged phenyl side groups is calculated using the Green function method within a tight-binding (Huckel) model. It is shown that the side groups have a striking effect on the energy band structure: they split the energy bands of the polyene chain into a set of minibands and minigaps, the number and width of which can be governed by changing the distance between the side groups and the degree of… CONTINUE READING
