Recent Advances in Vat Dyes Chemistry for Organic Electronics

Abstract

This review presents an overview of the recent development in the area of vat dyes chemistry for the preparation of π-conjugated molecules and polymers for organic electronics applications. Vat dyes are well-established molecules for textile colouring and painting industry as they are inexpensive and highly stable. Their optical properties in the visible region are attributed to their highly conjugated sp2 carbon network and the presence of functional groups, especially ketones that allow the formation of “leuco” species. In this review, we will show how the presence of functional groups on these highly conjugated scaffold can be used to modify their electronic and optical properties to make them useful building blocks for semiconducting organic materials.
