2,7-Bis(1'-pyrenylvinylene)-9,9-diethylfluorene (1) and 2,7-bis(1'-pyrenylvinylene- 4 ''-phenylenevinylene)-9,9-diethylfluorene (2) were synthesized and their static luminescence behavior assessed. They show solution photoluminescence (PL) maxima in chloroform at 475 nm and 467 nm, with quantum efficiencies of 54% and 52%, respectively. Double-layer LED devices with configuration ITO/PEDOT-PSS/(1 or 2)/Ca-Al emitted blue-green light with turn-on voltages of 2.5 V and emission maxima at 500 nm (2.48 eV); their luminance efficiencies were 0.36 and 0.30 cd A(-1), respectively. Blending of 1 at 20% (w/w) in PVK improved the luminance efficiency to 1.81 cd A(-1) for the same device configuration, with only a small increase in turn-on voltage to 3 V; the emission maximum was 497 nm (blue- green emission), the maximum luminance 7600 cd m(-2) with CIE color coefficients of (0.12, 0.45). For a 10% (w/w) blend of 2 in PVK using the same device configuration, the luminance efficiency was 1.47 cd A(-1), turn-on voltage 3 V, maximum luminance 2600 cd m(-2) with CIE coefficients of (0.13, 0.45). Simple p-MO calculations show that structural extension of the nominal conjugation length in 2 does not significantly decrease the effective band gap relative to 1, consistent with the observed lack of red shift in 2.

Luminescence of molecular and block copolymeric 2,7-bis(phenylethenyl)- fluorenones; identifying green-band emitter sites in a fluorene-based luminophore
RATHNAYAKE, Hemali P.; Çırpan, Ali; KARASZ, Frank E.; ODOI, Michael Y.; HAMMER, Nathan I.; BARNES, Michael D.; LAHTI, Paul M. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2007-06-26)
2,7-Bis(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenylethenyl)fluorenone (OFOPV) and a segmented oligomer analogue linking OFOPV units with polymethylene flexible spacersalt-poly(2,6-dimethoxylphenylene-4-vinylene-[9-fluorenone-2-yl-7-vinylene]3,5-dimethoxyphenylene-4-[1,6-hexanedioxyl]) (pFOPV)were synthesized and their luminescence properties studied. Solution-phase photoluminescence (PL) of OFOPV and pFOPV shows concentration-dependent relative intensities of a fine-structured higher energy band and a featureless lower energy b...
Voltammetric methods of reboxetine analysis and the mechanism of its electrode reactions
Altunöz Erdoğan, Deniz; Erk, Nevin; Kilic, Esma (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2013-05-01)
Reboxetine (RBX) electrochemical redox behavior at hanging mercury drop (HMDE) and glassy carbon electrodes (GCE) was studied in various pH Britton-Robinson universal buffers using cyclic voltammetry and square-wave voltammetry. RBX was reduced at the HMDE and oxidized at the GCE with reversible adsorption controlled and irreversible diffusion controlled processes respectively. The anodic peak is due to the amine and the cathodic peak may correspond to oxygen protonation. An oxidation reaction mechanism is ...
Processable donor-acceptor type electrochromes switching between multicolored and highly transmissive states towards single component RGB-based display devices
Balan, Abidin; Baran, Derya; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2010-01-01)
Donor-acceptor (DA) type polymers, poly(2-alkyl-4-(thiophen-2-yl)-2H-benzo[1,2,3]triazole)s (PTBT-DAs), with alternating alkyl chain substitution were synthesized and characterized in terms of their electrochemical and optical properties. Spray processable polymers have multicolored states upon oxidation and showed ambipolar characteristics in which n-type doping allowed them to achieve a transparent state in a low working potential range. Reported electrochemical and spectral results showed that PTBT-DAs a...
Entrapment of invertase in an interpenetrated polymer network of alginic acid and poly (1-vinylimidazole)
Kartal, Muejgan; Kayahan, Senem; Bozkurt, Ayhan; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 2008-12-15)
In this work, we have investigated the synthesis and characterization of a proton conductor based on alginic acid and poly (1-vinylimidazole). The polymer network was obtained by mixing alginic acid and poly (1-vinylimidazole) at various stoichiometric ratios. The polymer electrolytes were characterized by elemental analysis and FT-IR spectroscopy. Invertase was entrapped in the polymer networks during complex formation. Additionally, the maximum reaction rate and Michaelis-Menten constant were investigated...
Thermal activation energy of crystal and amorphous nano-silicon in SiO2 matrix
Wang, Jiwei; Righini, Marcofabio; Gnoli, Andrea; Foss, Steinar; Finstad, Terje; Serincan, Ugur; Turan, Raşit (Elsevier BV, 2008-09-01)
Temperature and size dependence of photoluminescence (PL) of nano-silicon embedded in SiO2 matrix samples were studied. In these measurements, four samples with deferent implantation dose showed their similar tendency. Their nano-structure was investigated by high resolution electron microscopy (HREM) and selected area diffraction (SAD) which confirmed that only those prepared with the higher Si implantation dose formed crystal nano-silicon. The further analysis of the dependence of thermal activation energ...
