Paper Title:
Electrochemical Copolymerization of Triphenylene and 3, 4-Ethylenedioxythiophene and Characterization of the Copolymer
  Abstract

A novel conducting copolymer, was successfully achieved by electrochemical oxidation of the monomer mixtures of 3, 4-ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT) and triphenylene (TP) in the acetonitrile solvent system containing 0.1 mol/L LiClO4. The resulting copolymer possesses the advantages of both polytriphenylene and poly(3, 4-ethylenedioxythiophene), such as good redox activity, considerable fluorescence property and relatively high electrical conductivity. Ultraviolet-visible, FT-IR and scanning electron microscopy were used to characterize and investigate the structure of the copolymers. Fluorescence spectra revealed that the copolymer dissolved in common organic solvents was a good blue light emitter, with a strong emission at 439 nm. All these results indicate that the copolymer films as obtained have many potential applications in various fields, such as organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs).
