Abstract
We report a series of polymers with linear, macrocyclic and hyperbranched structures for electroluminescent (EL) applications. The polymers are polycarbazoles (PC) containing different substituents. The polymers are amorphous and are soluble in common organic solvents such as chloroform, and tetrahydrofuran (THF). High optical quality films were obtained by spin-coating from the polymer solutions of chloroform or THF. All these polymers show strong photoluminescence under a UV-lamp illumination. Single and bilayer EL devices consisting of anode/hole transfer layer/electron transfer layer/cathode have been fabricated and characterized. The effects of polymer structures on the energy levels and EL properties are discussed. The results indicated that macrocyclic oligomers and hyperbranched polymers are new candidates for EL devices.
