Abstract: Curcuminoids present two aromatic rings joined by a seven-carbon conjugated chain and a β-diketone moiety in the central position. Despite of the number of curcuminoids synthetized until now, and the presence in many of them of functional groups susceptible to react with other species, their used as building blocks for the creation of highly dimensional structures is scarce. This, together with the properties shown by this family of molecules (biomedical, electronic…) and their versatile chemistry, motivated this doctoral thesis. Nine curcuminoids, including four new ones, were synthetized, and used to form Coordination polymers (CPs) and Organic Polymers (OPs). The variety of structures obtained probe the potential of these molecules to form extended structures and encourage to continue with this topic.
