We show the electrochemical polymerization and characteristic of six pphenylene derivatives. The electroactive comonomers and polymers containing furan, thiophene, and selenophene units are studied using electrochemical techniques (differential pulse voltammetry, cyclic voltammetry, electrochemical deposition, and voltabsorptiometry) in order to characterize layers, charge carriers, and energy electronic levels. The possibility of using such polymers as electrochromic windows is presented. Simple evaluation of charge carriers helps to explain the long switching time of electrochromic window.
