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 of a regular polymer containing pseudo-polyether cages
Cihaner, A; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Elsevier BV, 2005-04-20)
A new compound consisting of 2-thienyl units linked by polyether bridge has been synthesized and its electrochemical polymerization was performed via constant potential electrolysis (CPE) in an electrolytic solution containing 0.1 M tetrabutylammonium hexafluorophosphate (TBAPF(6)) dissolved in CH3CN. Chemical polymerization was carried out using FeCl3 as oxidizing agent. It is found that both methods gave the same polymer product without any cleavage of the polyether bridge between thiophene (Th) rings. Al...
Both anodically and cathodically coloring electrochromic polymer based on dithieno[3,4-b,3 ',4 '-e]-[1,4]-dithiine
Sahin, E; Camurlu, P; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 2006-02-01)
In this study poly(dithieno[3,4-b,3',4'-e]-[1,4]-dithiine) (PDTH) was synthesized potentiodynamically in both p- and n-doping domains in 0.1 M tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate/acetonitrie/borontrifluoride ethylether (8:2, v/v). Resulting homopolymer was characterized via cyclic voltammetry, FTIR and UV-vis Spectroscopy. PDTH revealed both anodically and cathodically coloring electrochromic behavior, upon p-and n-doping, respectively. Spectroelectrochemistry analysis of p-doped polymer, reflected electro...
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...
SELAMPINAR, F; Akbulut, Ural; YALCIN, T; SUZER, S; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 1994-02-01)
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.
Synthesis of New Thienylene Pyrrole Monomers and Their Electropolymerizations
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...
