Synthesis of a polyfluorene/poly(p-phenylene vinylene) derivative, the Poly {[}(9,9-di-hexylfluorenediylvinylene-alt-1,4-phenylenevinylene)-co-((9,9 -(3-t-butylpropanoate) fluorene-1,4-phenylene)] (LaPPS 42) was performed following Wittig and Suzuki routes. Polyfluorenes and derivatives have been used in electroluminescent devices, and the synthesis described here has the advantage in pave the way to get distinct structures having different emission spectra. An extensive study of its electrochemical, thermomechanical, optical, and structural properties was carried out, as well as its application in electroluminescent devices. Polymer light-emitting diodes (PLEDs) and polymer light-emitting electrochemical cells (PLECs) were built using LaPPS 42 as active layer, and their electric and optical characterizations confirm they have a potential as active element in electroluminescent devices.
