A general synthetic route to indenofluorene derivatives as new organic semiconductors
(Chemical Equation Presented) A series of 2,6-disubstituted indenofluorene derivatives were obtained in high purity via a general route involving the Suzuki coupling reaction. The potential of these conjugated indenofluorenes as new organic semiconductors was demonstrated by the light-emitting diode reaching a high luminance of 1400 Cd/m2 below 10 V.
