Interpolymer association of neutral synthetic polymers, unexpected from conventional solution theory, has been reported for a number of exciplex-forming polymers. In this note, we describe spectroscopic and electrochemical studies on the association of exciplex-forming polymers, and of the monomeric model system. Electrochemical measurement of dilute polymer solution is shown to be almost as sensitive as fluorescence spectroscopy. Whenever a polymer contains electrochemically responsive groups, the present approach will be of general use to study interpolymer interactions.
