AbstractWe report here that copolymeric poly(arylenevinylenes) have considerable advantages over their corresponding homopolymers in electroluminescent devices. We focus on the organic chemistry aspects of the design and properties of poly(p-phenylenevinylene)-based copolymer derivatives, especially poly(p-phenylenevinylene)/poly(2,5-dimethoxy-p-phenylenevinylene) copolymers and partially converted poly(p-phenylenevinylene).
