We investigated the spectroscopic properties of a series of four bistriarylamine donor-pi-bridge-donor D-pi-D compounds (dimers), composed of two asymmetric triarylamine chromophores (monomers). UV/vis, fluorescence, and transient absorption spectra were recorded and compared with those of the corresponding D-pi monomers. Bilinear Lippert-Mataga plots(More)
Hopping and superexchange are generally considered to be alternative electron-transfer mechanisms in molecular systems. In this work we used mixed-valence radical cations as model systems for the investigation of electron-transfer pathways. We show that substituents attached to a conjugated bridge connecting two triarylamine redox centres have a marked(More)
A new class of hole-transporting polymers for use in organic electronic devices such as organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) or photorefractive holographic storage devices has been synthesized. The polymers contain tetraarylbenzidines or tetraarylphenylenediamines as charge-transporting units in the polymer backbone and are connected by non-conjugating(More)
In this paper, we describe the synthesis and photophysical properties of a series of acridine-triarylamine redox cascades. These cascades were designed in order to promote photoinduced hole transfer from an acridine fluorophore into an adjacent triarylamine. The excited dipolar state then injects a hole into the triarylamine redox cascade. Subsequently, the(More)
We have investigated three organic mixed-valence systems that possess nearly identical inter-redox site distances and differ by the nature of the bridging units benzene, naphthalene, and anthracene: the N,N,N',N'-tetra(4-methoxyphenyl)-1,4-phenylenene-diamine radical cation (1+), the 1,4-bis(N,N-di(4-methoxyphenyl)-amino)naphthalene radical cation (2+), and(More)
