Synthesis and Optical Properties of Dithienostiboles
Dithienostiboles having a stibole ring fused with a bithiophene. system were prepared by the reactions of beta,beta'-dilithiobithiophene derivatives with aryldichlorostibines. Their optical properties were examined with respect to the UV absorption and emission spectra. DFT calculations on a model were also carried out to understand the electronic states.
