Novel formation of diimidazo[1,2-a:2',1'-c]quinoxaline derivatives and their optical properties.

Reaction of 1,2-di(imidazolyl)benzene treated with n-BuLi proceeded to give diimidazo[1,2-a:2',1'-c]quinoxaline in the presence of iodine or Pd(PPh(3))(4). Blue fluorescence was observed from 3,10-diarylated diimidazoquinoxalines with high quantum yield. They were also applied to organic light-emitting devices as emitters, in which the diphenyl derivative… CONTINUE READING
