Novel electroluminescent (EL) polymer based on fluorene having benzothiazolylpyrazoline unit in the main chain was synthesized. The result polymer possessed satisfactory thermal stability with onset decomposition temperature (Td) of 401 °C and glass-transition temperature (Tg) of 213 °C. The polymer emits green fluorescence with high photoluminescence (PL) quantum yield of 47%. Polymer light-emitting diode (PLED) was fabricated with the configuration of ITO/PEDT 40 nm/PVK 40 nm/polymer(80 nm)/Ba(4 nm)/Al(160 nm) showed turn-on voltage of 4.5 V, and it can emit green light with maximum brightness of 1726 cd m−2 with the maximum external quantum efficiency of 1.59%.
