Abstract

It has been demonstrated that the oxidative doping of a.oo-diphenylpolyenes generates polaronic and/or bipolaronic intermediates which can be directly observed by optical spectroscopy. Furthermore, the absorption frequencies have been shown to correlate with conjugation length and the nature of the substituents. Species are stabilized by donor substituents and destabilized by acceptor substituents. We now report conductivity and ESR studies on iodine doped α,ω-diphenylpolyenes, containing donor p,p’-disubstituents. The implications of these studies can provide insight into electrical conductivity and optical nonlinearity of doped organic materials.
