High purity monomer for applications in OFETs, OLED, PLED and OPV

For the synthesis of small molecules and semiconducting polymers

5,5'-bis(trimethylstannyl)-2,2'-bithiophene can be used for the synthesis of small molecules and polymer semiconductors for OFETs, OLED, PLED, OPV applications.5,5'-bis(trimethylstannyl)-2,2'-bithiophene can be prepared from 2,2'-bithiophene which is an electron rich and donating unit if it is embedded into low band-gap polymer semiconductors.

Reacting with 4,​9-​dibromo-​2,​7-​bis(2-​octyldodecyl)​-Benzo[3,​8]​phenanthroline-​1,​3,​6,​8-(2H,​7H)​-​tetrone, 5,5'-bis(trimethylstannyl)-2,2'-bithiophene yields a heavily n-dopable π-conjugated redox polymer, poly{[N,N′-bis(2-octyldodecyl)-1,4,5,8-naphthalenedicarboximide-2,6-diyl]-alt-5,5′-(2,2′-bithiophene)} (PNDI2OD-T2).

Synthesis of PNDI2OD-T2 by reacting 4,9-dibromo-2,7-bis(2-octyldodecyl)-Benzo[3,8]phenanthroline-1,3,6,8(2H,7H)-tetrone with 5,5'-bis(trimethylstannyl)-2,2'-bithiophene via Stille Coupling polymerisation

Note: This product has been used in our own lab by for the synthesis of PDPP4T and DPPDPyBT (n-type).
