2,2′-biphospholes : building blocks for tuning the HOMO-LUMO gap of π-systems using covalent bonding and metal coordination
Date of Issue2012
School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences
A new angle: The insertion of a 2,2′-biphosphole subunit into π-conjugated systems offers a new way to control the HOMO–LUMO gap. Tuning of the dihedral angle (θ) between the two phosphorous heterocycles, either by metal coordination or covalent bonding through the P substitution can lead to control of the band gap. These new π-conjugated systems can be used as emitting materials in white organic light-emitting devices (WOLEDs).
