New conjugated materials containing cyano substituents for light-emitting diodes

New electroluminescent cyano-substituted phenylenevinylene (PV) monomeric and oligomeric chromophores, 1–3, were synthesized by Knoevenagel condensation and investigated in terms of their photoluminescence (PL) and electroluminescence (EL) behavior. All show PL emission maxima between 463 and 471 nm in solution with quantum efficiencies of 0.65, 0.46 and 0.68, respectively. EL maxima in an LED configuration ITO/PEDOT–PSS/1–3/Ca–Al were 507, 518 and 551 nm with luminance efficiencies 0.01, 0.05 and 0.02 cd/A, respectively.

Synthesis and characterization of conducting copolymers of succinic acid bis-(4-pyrrol-1-yl-phenyl) ester and their electrochromic properties
Ertas, M; Çırpan, Ali; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 2004-05-07)
A new dipyrrolyl monomer was synthesized via the reaction between 4-pyrrol-1-yl phenol and butanedioyl dichloride. Electrochemical behavior of this monomer, succinic acid bis-(4-pyrrol-1-yl-phenyl) ester (SM) was studied. Homopolymerization was achieved by chemical and constant Current electrolysis methods. Copolymerization of SM with thiophene was performed by constant potential electrolysis in acetonitrile (AN)-tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB) and dichloromethane (DCM)-TBAFB, solvent-electroly...

A conducting composite of polypyrrole was prepared via electrochemical methods. A polyamide was used as the insulating matrix polymer. The characterization of the composite was done by FT-IR, SEM, TGA, DSC and pyrolysis studies. Conductivity and solubility studies together with spectroscopic methods reveal that H bonding exists between the two polymers and a possible grafting to a certain extent.

Eken, Serap; Carbas, Buket Bezgin; Akdağ, Akın; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (The Electrochemical Society, 2014-01-01)
In this study, four new 2,5-dithienylpyrroles (SNS) 1-(3-fluoro-phenyl)-2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-1H-pyrrole (m-FPTP), 1-(3-chlorophenyl)-2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-1H-pyrrole (m-ClPTP), 1-(3-bromo-phenyl)-2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-1H-pyrrole (m-BrPTP) and 1-(4-bromo-phenyl)-2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-1H-pyrrole (p-BrPTP) containing meta and para substituted benzene ring at the nitrogen atom were synthesized via Paal-Knorr condensation of 1,4-di(2-thienyl)-1,4-butanedione with corresponding halo-substituted anilines. The mon...
An electrochemically and optically stable electrochromic polymer film based on EDOT and 1,2,3,4-tetrahydrophenazine
ERGÜN, EMİNE GÜL CANSU; Eroglu, Deniz (Elsevier BV, 2019-12-01)
In this work, 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT) and 1,2,3,4-tetrahydrophenazine based donor-acceptor-donor type monomer (EBE) was synthesized, electropolymerized and the resulting polymer film (P(EBE)) was investigated in terms of its electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical properties. The polymer film showed excellent electrochemical stability upon 1000 switchings by saving almost full of its electroactivity. Moreover, 95% of the optical contrast was maintained after 500 switchings. The optical band gap...
Benzyl substituted benzotriazole containing conjugated polymers: Effect of position of the substituent on electrochromic properties
Yigitsoy, Basak; Karim, S. M. Abdul; Balan, Abidin; Baran, Derya; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 2010-12-01)
New classes of EDOT coupled-benzotriazole bearing pi-conjugated monomers containing benzyl units on electron-withdrawing benzotriazole moiety were synthesized. The effect of structural differences on electrochemical and optoelectronic properties of the resulting polymers (PBBTES and PBBTEA) was investigated. The results showed that the insertion of benzyl substituent to benzotriazole from different positions changes the electronic structure of polymer which results in completely different electrochemical an...
