Fourier Transform Infrared Photoacoustic (FT-IR/PA) spectroscopy provides a means to obtain high quality spectra of polyparaphenylene (PPP), an organic semiconductor. Spectra of PPP prepared by two different methods, heavily n-doped PPP, and a new organometallic derivative, PPP(Mo(CO)3)0.25 are presented. Spectral acquisition times for these polymers can be as low as one minute.
