Electroluminescence of Naturally Oxidized Polypyrrole
Soluble polypyrrole was obtained by naturally oxidizing pyrrole in air at room temperature for one to four years. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and ultraviolet-visible absorption spectroscopy were employed to characterize the chemical structures of the naturally oxidized polypyrrole. The electroluminescence from the naturally oxidized polypyrrole was recorded. The electroluminescence of the naturally oxidized polypyrrole was broad with its peak located at about 480 nm. Prototyped thin-film display panels were developed using the naturally oxidized polypyrrole as active medium.
