A diamino fluorene derived building block

As an intermediate for the synthesis of polyimides and semiconductors in application of high-performance polymers, solar cells, and fuel cell membranes

Specifications | MSDS | Literature and Reviews

9,9-Bis(4-aminophenyl)fluorene (FDA), CAS number 15499-84-0, is a fluorene derivative with two aminophenyl substituents on the 9-position. 9,9-Bis(4-aminophenyl)fluorene is partially conjugated and can be developed as a dopant-free organic hole transporting materials in inverted perovskite solar cells (overall efficiency of 15.9%).

By having the diaminophenyl groups, FDA is commonly used to synthesize polyimides that exhibit high thermal stability (Td5% = 530 °C) and hydrolytic stability for optical fibre light guide coatings. Due to the fact that FDA is not fully aromatized, it is selected for synthesizing thermally stable transparent polyimides. A further modification of the polyimide synthesized from 9,9-bis(4-aminophenyl)fluorene is feasible via Friedel-Crafts alkylation on the fluorene moiety, as the polyimide backbone is chemically stable.
