High purity monomer

Widely used building block for the synthesis of ultra-narrow band-gap non-fullerene acceptors

Specifications | MSDS | Literature and Reviews

5-Bromo-4-((2-ethylhexyl)oxy)-2-thiophenecarboxaldehyde (EHOThCHO-Br), CAS number 2055812-54-7, is a thiophene derivative with multiple functional groups around the thiophene ring. Both bromo and aldehyde functional groups at 2,5-positions enable C-C formation to grow the chain length and extend its conjugation in the targeted semiconducting molecules. Ethylhexyloxyl group is there not only to enhance the solubility but also to lower the HOMO/LUMO energy levels of the targeted molecules. Comparing with the molecules bearing ethylhexyl group, molecules with ethylhexyloxyl side chains extend their absorption further to near infrared (NIR) region. 5-Bromo-4-((2-ethylhexyl)oxy)-2-thiophenecarboxaldehyde is a widely used building block that is used for the synthesis of ultra-narrow band-gap non-fullerene acceptors (NFAs) such as IEICO, IEICO-4F and IEICO-4Cl.

Absorption of IEICO-4F mainly locates in the deep-red and near infrared region, ranging from ~700 nm to ~1000 nm.
