A new electron acceptor 6-alkylpyrrolo­[3,4-d]­pyridazine-5,7-dione (PPD) with a very low LUMO level has been synthesized via a challenging inverse electron demand Diels–Alder reaction between thiophene and furan-decorated tetrazine substrates and an electron-deficient 1-alkyl-1H-pyrrole-2,5-dione unit. The PPD monomer has been incorporated into a series of donor–acceptor-type conjugated polymers as electrochromic materials with good optical contrast, fast switching speed, and high coloration efficiency.
