In this payer we report the absolute photoluminescence quantum yield of
poly(p-pyridine) (PPy), which is a promising electroluminescent
polymer. The influence of vacuum and air on the quantum yield of the
PPy is investigated. We find a significant decay of the efficiency
under vacuum whereas it is stable in air. We compare the results with
those obtained on poly(p-phenylenevinylene)(PPV).
