|Abstract:||A novel series of poly(2,5-dialkoxy-1,4-phenylene-alt-2,5-pyridine)s functionalized with alternating donor/accepter repeat units was synthesized using a Suzuki coupling approach and characterized by FT-IR, NMR (13C and 1H), UV-vis, fluorescence spectroscopy, gel permeation chromatography, and thermal analyses. The derived polymers were soluble in common organic solvents and trifloroacetic acid and exhibited good thermal stability. In all cases, the electronic and optical properties of these novel copolymers were consistent with the rigid-rod conjugated structure. They emitted intense blue light under UV irradiation in both the film and solution phases with high quantum yields. Single-layer blue light-emitting diodes were successfully fabricated using these materials as emitting layers. The electrochemical behavior of these new polymers depicted facile n-doping and good electron transporting properties attributable to the presence of the electron-withdrawing pyridinyl unit. These polymers displayed bathochromic shift when protonated with trifluoroacetic acid in chloroform solutions. The surface morphologies of the polymer films cast from chloroform and chloroform/trifloroacetic acid mixtures were investigated by scanning electron micrographs.|
