Paper Abstract

We report here on the results of the characterization of a novel -OPhCN substituted thiophenic monomer, and of the obtained copolymers between the latter and the plastifying comonomer 3-hexylthiophene. The polymer evidences an excellent filmability from various organic solvents as well as an enhanced photoluminescence. The characteristics of the polymer were characterized by FTIR and XRD as well as photoluminescence. A bandgap of 2.0eV was obtained which corresponds to orange emission. Furthermore, a single layer organic device was fabricated and resulted in bright stable electroluminescence at room temperature. All of the results indicate that this polymer is a promising emissive material for application in light-emitting devices (LEDs).
