ABSTRACT New chiral, soluble binaphthyl derivatives that incorporate stilbenoid dendrons at the 6,6'-positions have been prepared. The synthesis of the new enantiopure dendrimers was performed in a convergent manner by Horner-Wadsworth-Emmons (HWE) reaction of the appropriately functionalized 1,1'-binaphthyl derivative (R)-1 and the appropriate dendrons (R)(2n)G(n)-CHO. Different electroactive units were incorporated in the peripheral positions of the dendrons in order to tune both the optical and electrochemical behavior of these systems. Fluorescence measurements on the chiral dendrimers reveal a strong emission with maxima between 409 and 508 nm depending upon the substitution pattern. Finally, the redox properties of the dendrimers were determined by cyclic voltammetry, showing the influence of the functional groups at the peripheral positions of the dendrimer on the redox behavior of these systems.

    ABSTRACT: Synthesis of dendrimers with enones as the core unit and m-terphenyl as surface end group has been achieved. All the enones and the dendrimers were antibacterial against Salmonella typhi, Salmonella pararyphi and Staphylococcus aureus.

    ABSTRACT: Strong intermolecular interactions usually result in decreases in solubility and fluorescence efficiency of organic molecules. Therefore, amorphous materials are highly pursued when designing solution-processable, electroluminescent organic molecules. In this paper, a non-planar binaphthyl moiety is presented as a way of reducing intermolecular interactions and four binaphthyl-containing molecules (BNCMs): green-emitting BBB and TBT as well as red-emitting BTBTB and TBBBT, are designed and synthesized. The photophysical and electrochemical properties of the molecules are systematically investigated and it is found that TBT, TBBBT, and BTBTB solutions show high photoluminescence (PL) quantum efficiencies of 0.41, 0.54, and 0.48, respectively. Based on the good solubility and amorphous film-forming ability of the synthesized BNCMs, double-layer structured organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) with BNCMs as emitting layer and poly(N-vinylcarbazole) (PVK) or a blend of poly[N,N′-bis(4-butylphenyl)-N,N′-bis(phenyl)benzidine] and PVK as hole-transporting layer are fabricated by a simple solution spin-coating procedure. Amongst those, the BTBTB based OLED, for example, reaches a high maximum luminance of 8315 cd · m−2 and a maximum luminous efficiency of 1.95 cd · A−1 at a low turn-on voltage of 2.2 V. This is one of the best performances of a spin-coated OLED reported so far. In addition, by doping the green and red BNCMs into a blue-emitting host material poly(9,9-dioctylfluorene-2,7-diyl) high performance white light-emitting diodes with pure white light emission and a maximum luminance of 4000 cd · m−2 are realized.

    ABSTRACT: Stilbenoid dendrimers possessing a methanol or methane core are prepared using Wittig-Homer reactions. The dendritic tris(stilbenyl)carbinols 3a-c are converted into the corresponding methylium salts 3'a-c on treatment with trifluoroacetic or tetrafluoroboric acid. The extended cross-conjugation in the dendritic methylium ion 3'c results in a long-wavelength absorption (lambda(max) = 697 nm) whereas the conjugated model systems 3'a and 3'b are red-shifted (lambda(max) = 772 nm and 748 nm, respectively). Charge delocalization in the cations is evident from the low-Field shifts of the (13)C NMR signals. In contrast to the dark-blue dyes 3'a-c, the tris(stilbenyl)carbinols and tetrakis(stilbenyl)methane derivatives 3a-c and 7 exhibit long-wavelength absorption bands in the UV region.
