General description

Aromatic discotic liquid crystals which exhibits photogeneration of electron-hole pair are used widely in light emitting diodes, photovoltaic cells and field effect transistors. Pyrene is an aromatic discotic crystal which is widely used as a fluorescent dye or as an ambipolar charge carrier in Organic Light Emitting Diodes.[1]

Application

Pyrene and its derivatives are electron-donor materials and can be used to prepare electron donor-acceptor systems for energy conversion and light harvesting applications like OLED and solar cells. It can also be used as a probe to determine the critical micellar concentration of surfactants and to study the protein conformation and conformational changes by fluorescence spectroscopy.

Packaging

1, 25, 100 g in glass bottle

Features and Benefits

Long intrinsic fluorescence lifetime, lipophilic hydrocarbon, facilitates charge transport due to the strong p-p interactions in the solid state.[2][3]π-system does not require protection during functionalization
