Abstract

Increased electron affinity and improved electron-transporting properties are lent to polymers based on pyridine when compared to benzene. Here, the synthesis of new pyridine-containing conjugated polymers, such as those shown in the Figure, are described. Their optical absorption and luminescence spectra in solution and thin films are also investigated as is their potential as electron-transporting layers in LEDs.
