Paper Abstract

The synthesis of poly(1,4-phenylene vinylene)s (PPVs) containing a 2,3-dialkoxy substitution pattern has been developed. Poly[2,3-bis(2-ethylhexyloxy)-1,4-phenylene vinylene] (BEH-PPV) 4 was prepared by Gilch polycondensation, and its optical properties were compared with the recently discussed poly(2,3-dibutoxy-1,4-phenylene vinylene) (DB-PPV) 1. The precursors for the Gilch method have traditionally been prepared by methods which have certain disadvantages. These can be overcome by the use of directed metallation reactions which are illustrated in the synthesis of some poly(2,5-disilyl-substituted 1,4-arylene vinylene) derivatives.
