Coplanarity in the backbones of ladder-type oligo(p-phenylene) homologues and derivatives.


PMID 17048835

Abstract

p-Tolyl-substituted ladder-type oligo(p-phenylene)s containing three, four, and five phenylene rings were readily synthesized. The uniform aryl substitution of these systems allowed us to determine the coplanarity of the pi-conjugated backbones crystallographically. The intramolecular annulations eliminate almost all of the conformational disorder and enhance the degree of pi-conjugation of the backbones, resulting in significant red shifts in the absorption and emission maxima and lower oxidation potentials in the higher homologues.
