Design of nanomaterials and research on their properties contributes, among other things, to the ongoing development of modern technologies applied in organic electronics. Interesting solutions are provided by anthracene derivatives, which, thanks to their properties, may be used for the construction of active layers in organic electroluminescent diodes (OLEDs).
A method for obtaining such derivatives in the form of 9-alkoxy-10-bromoanthracenes has been developed by scientists from the University of Silesia in Katowice. Thanks to the proposed solutions, it will be easier to implement the proper anthracene element, rich in electrons, into structures of higher complexity. Ultimately, the appropriate solubility of systems obtained in this manner in organic liquids will also be achieved, which is of key significance in the synthesis of materials applied in organic electronics, including luminescent materials. The solution has been covered by patent protection.
The anthracene derivatives in the form of 9-alkoxy-10-bromoanthracenes and the method of obtaining have been developed by Dr Eng. Dawid Zych, Dr Marek Matussek, Prof. Eng. Stanisław Krompiec, Krystian Pożoga, MSc Eng., and Aneta Kurpanik, MSc.
