Synthesis of 2,5-bis[(3,4-ethylenedioxy)thien-2-yl]- 3-substituted thiophenes.


[reaction: see text] Synthesis of 2,5-bis[(3,4-ethylenedioxy)thien-2-yl]-3-substituted thiophene monomers afforded compounds with blue emission characteristics and having a quantum yield of 3-5%. Cyclic voltammetry was employed to investigate the electrochemical behavior of the four monomers reported here. Polymer films were deposited by repeated potential… (More)
