Photophysical properties of diketopyrrolopyrrole derivatives substituted with oligothiophenes are investigated. All compounds are found to be fluorescent both in solution and in the solid phase. At low temperature in the solid, fluorescence originates from excimer-like excited states. Comparison of absorption and fluorescence excitation spectra taken under(More)
The photophysics of fully and partially covered self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of a quinquethiophene (5T) derivative have been investigated. The monolayers behave as H-aggregates. The fluorescence of fully covered SAMs is weak and red-shifted, and the extinction is blue-shifted as compared to that of single molecules. The fluorescence of partially covered(More)
Bichromophoric molecules containing two 3,6-di(thiophen-2-yl)pyrrolo[3,4-c]pyrrole-1,4(2H,5H)-dione (DPP) moieties linked via aliphatic spacers of different length are synthesized. Optical absorption spectroscopy indicates that the molecules adopt an extended conformation in solution. Fluorescence spectroscopy shows that photons are emitted from the locally(More)
We describe the synthesis and photophysical properties of a series of derivatives of pyrrolo[3,2-b]pyrrole-2,5(1H,4H)-dione-3,6-diyl (iDPP) linked to two oligothiophenes of variable length (nT). The iso-DPP-oligothiophenes (iDPPnTs) differ from the common pyrrolo[3,4-c]pyrrole-1,4(2H,5H)-dione-3,6-diyl-oligothiophene analogues (DPPnTs) by a different(More)
