3,3'-Difluoro-5,5'-bis(trimethylstannyl)-2,2'-bithiophene


Product Code B391
Price £208.00 ex. VAT

3,3'-Difluoro-5,5'-bis(trimethylstannyl)-2,2'-bithiophene is used for the synthesis of small molecules or polymer semiconductors in organic electronic applications, such as P(NDI2OD-T2F).

It is believed that, by introducing heteroatoms such as fluorine on the backbone of polymer structures, the crystalline properties of the conjugated polymers can be enhanced, resulting in a higher degree of orientation of such polymer structures with optimised domain size in blended thin films with either fullerene or non-fullerene acceptors.

This product has been used in our own lab by Ossila chemists for the synthesis of PBDD4T-2F.
