Donor-Acceptor Substituted Thienylpyrrole Azo Dyes: Synthesis, Solvatochromic and Electrochemical Properties


Article Preview

The synthesis of thienyl- substituted pyrrole azo dyes and their UV-visible, solvatochromic and electrochemical properties are described. In agreement with the solvatochromic data and also with the electrochemical study the new donor-acceptor systems synthesized could have applications in NLO.
