A summary of recent advances on the chemistry and photophysics of silylene-spaced divinylarene copolymers is presented. The silicon moieties have been shown to serve as an insulating spacer in these copolymers. The photophysical studies have provided useful insights into how chromophores in polymers interact intramolecularly. Because different chromophores can be regioregularly introduced into the polymeric chain, these copolymers have been extensively used as models for studying energy transfer, light harvesting as well as chiroptical transfer.
