(E,E)-2,7-Bis(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenylethenyl)fluorene 1, and a segmented copolymer 2 composed of the same chromophore alternated with nonconjugated 1,6-hexanediyl (alt-oligo(2,6-dimethoxylphenylene-4-vinylene-[9,9-diethylfluoren-2-yl-7-vinylene]-3,5-dimethoxy-phenylene-4-[1,6-hexanedioxyl]) were synthesized. They have solution photoluminescence emission maxima at 420-460 nm, with quantum efficiencies of 0.93 and 0.68, respectively, in chloroform. Electroluminescent spectra in an LED configuration ITO/PEDOT-PSS/(1 or 2)/Ca-Al both showed maxima at 470-480 nm, although the spectrum from 2 was significantly broader. The luminance of LEDs with 1 was over 10-fold higher than those with copolymer 2, 0.515 versus 0.040 cd/A, with turn-on voltages of 3 and 5 V, respectively. The crystallography of I showed no chromophore pi-stacking; this absence should limit tendencies for emission wavelength shifts due to solid state interchromophore interactions. When 1 was heated in air before incorporation into an LED emissive layer, a 540 nm emission component was produced, which did not occur if 1 was not heated before use. Emissive layers of 1 with PMMA gave stronger luminance than either neat 1 or 2, with only a modest increase in turn-on voltage. A 10% (w/w) I:PMMA based LED emission showed a maximum at 444 nm (blue emission with CIE color coefficients of (0.153, 0.312)), with a luminance efficiency of 4.5 cd/A and a turn on voltage of 4.5 V.

Proquinoidal-Conjugated Polymer as an Effective Strategy for the Enhancement of Electrical Conductivity and Thermoelectric Properties
Tam, Teck Lip Dexter; Ng, Chee Koon; Lim, Siew Lay; Yıldırım, Erol; Ko, Jieun; Leong, Wei Lin; Yang, Shuo-Wang; Xu, Jianwei (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2019-10-22)
P-doping of conjugated polymers requires electron transfer from the conjugated polymer to the p-dopant. This implies that the highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) of the conjugated polymer has to be higher than the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) of the p-dopant. Although commonly used p-dopants such as 2,3,5,6-tetrafluoro-7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane (F4TCNQ) have a low LUMO of -5.24 eV, most conjugated polymers used in high-performance field-effect transistors are donor- acceptor-type ...

A new monomer, 4-(thiophen-3-yl methyleneamino)benzene sulfonate) (ThSA), was synthesized and characterized. Electrochemical polymerization of ThSA yields a water-soluble and self-doped polymer (PThSA). This polymer was characterized by FT-IR, NMR, DSC, XRD and conductivity measurements.

Aryl butenoic acid derivatives as a new class of histone deacetylase inhibitors: synthesis, in vitro evaluation, and molecular docking studies

New aryl butenoic acid derivatives have been synthesized by combining hydroxy- or methoxy-substituted phenyl rings as the capping group, with a double bond in the short linker as well as metal binding groups, enoic ester, and salts bearing either methyl or morpholine. These compounds have been shown to possess promising histone deacetylase inhibition activities via in vitro fluorometric assay and molecular docking studies.
New, highly stable electrochromic polymers from 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene-bis-substituted quinoxalines toward green polymeric materials
Durmus, Asuman; Günbaş, Emrullah Görkem; Toppare, Levent Kamil (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2007-12-11)
Two new highly stable electrochromic polymers, poly(5,8-bis(2,3-dihydrothieno[3,4-b][1,4]dioxin-5-yl)-2,3-di(thiophen-2-yl)quinoxaline) (PDETQ) and poly (5,8-bis(2,3 -dihydrothieno[3,4-b][ 1,4]dioxin-5yl)quinoxaline) (PDEQ) were synthesized, and their potential use as neutral state green polymeric materials was investigated. Spectroelectrochemistry showed that both polymers reveal two distinct absorption bands as expected for this type of donor-acceptor polymer, at 410 and 660 nm for PDEQ and 405 and 780 nm...

Three electroactive terthienyl based monomers, namely 1-phenyl-2-[4-(2,2':5',2 ''-terthien-3'-ylmethoxy)phenyl]diazene (TTAz), 4-(2,2':5',2 ''-terthien-3'-ylmethoxy)-2H-chromen-2-one (TTCo) and methyl 2-[3-oxo-6-(2,2':5',2 ''-terthien-3'-ylmethoxy)-3H-xanthen-9-yl] benzoate (TTFlo), were synthesized with good yields and their conducting polymers were electrochemically prepared on ITO electrode surfaces. The effect of chromophore type on electrochemical and optical properties of the polymers was investigated...
