Electrochemical and optical studies of the band gaps of alternating polyfluorene copolymers
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2006

The electrochem. and optical properties of alternating polyfluorene copolymers with low band gaps were detd. These polymers incorporated fluorene units alternating with groups including electron-withdrawing (A) and electron-donating (D) groups in donor-acceptor-donor (DAD) sequence to achieve the lowering of band gaps. The polymers were solvent-casted on Pt disk electrode and the band gaps were estd. from cyclic voltammetry (CV). These values were compared with values obtained from optical absorption measurements. Although the electrochem. detd. band gaps are slightly higher than the optical band gap in most cases, values are well correlated. The values of the band gaps detd. range from 2.1 to 1.3 eV.
