Herein, we report the straightforward synthesis of unsheathed insulated molecular wires through Yamamoto reductive polycondensation. Despite the step-growth mechanism, block copolymers could be obtained because of the difference in the reactivities of the sheathed and unsheathed monomers. We expect that such a unique structure could find use as a charge-transporting wire in molecular electronics.
