Abstract

The reaction of bis(para-ethynylbenzene)-2,3,5,6-tetramethoxyquinone diimine and bis(para-ethynylbenzene)-2,3,5,6-tetramethoxyquinone diamine and trans-Pt(PEt3)2Cl2 in a 1:1:2 ratio in the presence of CuI and iPrNH2 generates the polydispersed material poly(bis(para-ethynylbenzene)-2,3,5,6-tetramethoxy-quinone diimine)-trans-bis(triethyl-phosphine)platinum(II)-(bis(para-ethynylbenzene)-2,3,5, 6-tetramethoxyquinone diamine)-trans-bis(triethylphosphine)platinum(II). Based on the luminescence decay traces, the distribution of the diimine and diamine residues is statistic.
