9,9-Dioctyl-2,7-dibromofluorene can be used for the synthesis of polymer semiconductors engaging either Suzuki coupling or Stille coupling reactions.
Alkylsubstituted polyfluorenes have emerged as a very attractive class of conjugated polymers, especially for display applications, owing to their pure blue and efficient electroluminescence coupled with a high charge-carrier mobility and good processability.
The unique molecular structure, the joined biphenyl at 9-postion for a maximum pi-conjugation and planar structure, and also the excellent optical and electronic properties, have brought semiconducting polyfluorenes in the focus of scientific and industrial interest. Polyfluorenes are known as semiconducting materials used for light emitting diodes, organic photovoltaics and interface layer materials for organic electronics. By reacting with 9,9-Dioctylfluorene-2,7-diboronic acid bis(pinacol) ester in toluene, it yields PFO (F8).
