The Effect of Electron Withdrawing Groups on Functional Conjugated Systems

Eastman, Victoria H.

Poly(arylene-ethynylene)-alt-poly(arylene-vinylene) (PAE-PAV) oligomers were synthesized with electron withdrawing end groups in order to determine the effects on their relative fluorescence quantum yields and absorbance wavelengths. O-nitrobenzyl ester (NBEs) derivatives were studied in order to determine the effect of the electron withdrawing groups on absorbance and the rate of photocleavage. T... read more
