Abstract

We report here that copolymeric poly(arylenevinylenes) have considerable advantages over their corresponding homopolymers in electroluminescent devices. We focus on the organic chemistry aspects of the design and properties of poly(p-phenylenevinylene)-based copolymer derivatives, especially poly(p-phenylenevinylene)/poly(2,5-dimethoxy-p-phenylenevinylene) copolymers and partially converted poly(p-phenylenevinylene).
