Substituted Tetrakis (Arylethynyl) Benzenes



Organic compounds possessing a high degree of conjugation are recognized as ideal materials for advanced electronic and photonic applications including organic LEDs, LCDs, thin film transistors, solar cells, and optical storage devices.  Optical and physical properties of highly conjugated organic molecules can be altered by changing the substitutional groups and substitution patterns.  Functionalized phenylacetylene and phenylvinylene structures are known to exhibit remarkable optical and electronic properties because of their multiple conjugated pathways. 


Tetrakis(arylethynyl)benzene (TPEB) molecules exhibit a range of remarkable optical and electronic properties.  The optical fluorescence emission can be tuned over a broad range of the visible spectra.
