  • Publication number: 20140221664
    Abstract: The inventions disclosed and described herein relate to new and efficient generic methods for making a wide variety of compounds having HAr—Z-Har tricyclic cores, wherein HAr is an optionally substituted five or six membered heteroaryl ring, and Hal is a halogen, and Z is a bridging radical, such as S, Sc, NR5, C(O), C(O)C(O), Si(R5)2, SO, SO2, PR5, BR5, C(R5)2 or P(O)R5 and both HAr are covalently bound to one another. The synthetic methods employ a “Base-Catalyzed Halogen Dance” reaction to prepare a metallated compound comprising a five or six membered heteroaryl ring comprising a halogen atom, and then oxidatively coupling the reactive intermediate compound. The compounds of Formula (II) and/or oligomer or polymers comprising repeat units having Formula (II) can be useful for making semi-conducting materials, and/or electronic devices comprising those materials. Acyl compounds can be prepared. Heteroarylene substituents can be used. The core tricyclic core can be coupled to itself.

  • Patent number: 8197722
    Abstract: Compositions capable of simultaneous two-photon absorption and higher order absorptivities are provided. Compounds having a donor-pi-donor or acceptor-pi-acceptor structure are of particular interest, where the donor is an electron donating group, acceptor is an electron accepting group, and pi is a pi bridge linking the donor and/or acceptor groups. The pi bridge may additionally be substituted with electron donating or withdrawing groups to alter the absorptive wavelength of the structure. Also disclosed are methods of generating an excited state of such compounds through optical stimulation with light using simultaneous absorption of photons of energies individually insufficient to achieve an excited state of the compound, but capable of doing so upon simultaneous absorption of two or more such photons. Applications employing such methods are also provided, including controlled polymerization achieved through focusing of the light source(s) used.
