Abstract

We describe the synthesis of 8-hydroxyquinoline-tethered poly(styrene)s as modular precursors for functionalization with metalloquinolates to form either tris(8-hydroxyquinoline)aluminum (Alq 3) or 8-hydroxyquinoline biphenylboron (BPh 2q) pendant polymers. All polymers, both in solution and in the solid state, show similar luminescent properties as their corresponding reference compounds Alq 3 and BPh 2q while retaining excellent solution-processing properties. These results clearly indicate that the poly(styrene) backbone does not interfere with the photophysical properties of the pendant Alq 3 and BPh 2q chromophores but endows solution processability to the materials.
