Poly(3-chiral methylsulfinyl-1,2-phenyleneoxide) was synthesized, and the regioselective intramolecular ring-closing of the pendant sulfoxide on the polymer formed the corresponding helical ladder structure comprising of a fused phenoxathiine ring. The CD of the ladder polymer gave a Cotton effect which was caused by the chirality of the pendant group.
