Chiral all-�-conjugated conducting polymers are of significant importance because of their promising aspects ranging from organic electronics, organic spin filters, efficient water splitting materials, magneto-optic materials to circularly polarized light emitters. Here, we report the synthesis and characterization of the first series of diketopyrrolopyrrole based chiral low band-gap alternating copolymers. Alongside characterizations by UV and CD spectroscopy, AFM and FESEM were further performed to understand the morphology of the optically active polymers. The stereochemistry of the side-chains on TDPP unit played a pivotal role in determining chiroptical properties and supramolecular self-assembly of the copolymers in solution which lead to layer-by-layer helical morphology in solid-state. Interestingly, D-A intramolecular charge transfer transition showed Cotton effect with bimodal nature, which is remarkably stronger than the �-�* transition. © 2021 Wiley Periodicals LLC
