Ionic Complexes Of Conjugated Oligoquinolines

  • Ashok S. Shetty (a1) and Samson A. Jenekhe (a1)


Single crystal X-ray structures of salt complexes of oligoquinoline, 2,2'-bis(4- phenylquinoline)-1,4-phenylene (4), with p-toluenesulfonic acid, trifluoromethanesulfonic acid and a laser dye, Sulforhodamine 101 hydrate have been determined and used to study the effects of molecular packing on physical and photophysical properties of conjugated oligomer and polymers. UV-vis and emission spectra of thin films of the oligoquinoline-p-toluenesulfonate complex were also performed. These results indicate that they form an intermolecular charge-transfer complex. These complexes serve as models of quarternized polyquinolines such as the self-assembled bilayer films of polyquinoline and polystyrenesulfonic acid.
