Synthesis and photophysical properties of platinum-acetylide copolymers with thiophene, selenophene and tellurophene†
A series of platinum-acetylide copolymers with thiophene, selenophene, and tellurophene have been synthesized and studied. Photoluminescence experiments show that polymers undergo intersystem crossing to triplet states, leading to phosphorescence. The observed phosphorescence decreases in intensity moving down the group. DFT calculations are used to further understand the optical properties.
