In this article we discuss synthetic routes to organic conjugated oligomers and polymers bearing triple C-C bonds that have
been recently developed in our laboratories, based on Pd-catalyzed Csp-Csp2 coupling reactions. Experimental protocols have been tuned
to face synthetic challenges such as the presence in the main conjugated backbone of multifunctional substituents or uncommon conjugated
units. The relevance of the obtained products in terms of properties and applications is also shortly mentioned.
