Well-defined fluorene oligomers (n = 1 to 6) were prepared step by step using Suzuki and Yamamoto couplings, while absorption and photoluminescence properties evidenced very large dipolar coupling interactions between fluorene moieties.

    ABSTRACT: Soluble green light-emitting poly(9,9-dihexylfluorene-co-fluorenone) was synthesized by solvent-free oxidative coupling polymerization of 9,9-dihexylfluorene in a facile one-step reaction. The polymers were characterized by FT-IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR, UV-Vis and fluorescence spectroscopy. The region-regular structure of the polymer linking at 2, 7′-position on the fluorene moieties was obtained. The FT-IR spectra of the polymers showed fluorenone vibration. The fluorescence spectra of the solid thin film of the polymers displayed green light-emitting, which was emitted from fluorenone moieties produced in the polymerization process.

    ABSTRACT: The cationic complexes Ru<sub>2</sub>[( p -MeC<sub>6</sub>H<sub>4</sub> i Pr)<sub>2</sub>( p -SC<sub>6</sub>H<sub>4</sub>Br)<sub>3</sub>]<sup>+</sup> and Rh<sub>2</sub> [(C<sub>5</sub>Me<sub>5</sub>)<sub>2</sub>( p -SC<sub>6</sub>H<sub>4</sub>Br)<sub>3</sub>]<sup>+</sup> are available in quantitative yields from the reaction of p -HSC<sub>6</sub>H<sub>4</sub>Br with [Ru( p -MeC<sub>6</sub>H<sub>4</sub> i Pr)Cl<sub>2</sub>]<sub>2</sub> and [Rh(C<sub>5</sub>Me<sub>5</sub>)Cl<sub>2</sub>]<sub>2</sub> respectively. These complexes are found to undergo triple Suzuki coupling with oligophenylene boronic acids to give [Ru<sub>2</sub> ( p -MeC<sub>6</sub>H<sub>4</sub> i Pr)<sub>2</sub>{ p -S-(C<sub>6</sub>H<sub>4</sub>)<sub>n</sub>-C<sub>6</sub>H<sub>5</sub>}<sub>3</sub>]<sup>+</sup> and [Rh<sub>2</sub>(C<sub>5</sub>Me<sub>5</sub>)<sub>2</sub>{ p -S-(C<sub>6</sub>H<sub>4</sub>)<sub>n</sub>-C<sub>6</sub>H<sub>5</sub>}<sub>3</sub>]<sup>+</sup> respectively. The star-like trisbromo complexes are potential precursors for the insertion of dinuclear organometallic entities into the main chain of conjugated molecules.

    ABSTRACT: We describe the synthesis and nonlinear absorption properties of triarylamine derivatives. Six molecules were synthesised by using a double Ullmann coupling procedure. UV-Vis absorption spectra show the excellent transparency of these triarylamine derivatives in the visible range (λcut-off ≤ 420 nm). Nonlinear absorption measurements show a broadband nonlinear absorption range extending between 450–650 nm with an optimised efficiency for a planar conjugated system (fluorene, molecule 10) or a hindered donor group (molecule 12). These data were interpreted by means of a two step three-photon absorption scheme: a TPA process followed by an S1→Sn ESA step; the product of both spectra is qualitatively in good agreement with nonlinear absorption spectra, leading to different molecular engineering approaches for optimisation of these features in the visible range through TPA and/or ESA properties.
