5-(4-Trimethylsilyethynylphenyl)-10,15,20-triphenylplatinumporphyrin was synthesized and copolymerized with trimethylsilylpropyne to give a new high-molecular-weight porphyrin polymer. The polymer formed a smooth and tough coating on many types of surfaces. The coating showed a strong blue luminescence from the platinumporphyrin residue which was quenched in the presence of oxygen. The relationship of the luminescence intensity vs oxygen pressure displayed a remarkably high pressure sensitivity in the low oxygen pressure area, which was ascribed to the high oxygen permeability of the polymer.
