Column Chromatography: A Facile and Inexpensive Procedure to Purify the Red Dopant DCJ Applied for OLEDs
Abstract: DCJ, one of the DCM derivatives, has been used as a laser dye and a red emitter or a red dopant for OLED devices in recent decade. 4-(dicyanomethylene)-2-methyl-6-(julolidyl-9-enyl)-4H-pyran (DCJ) containing julolidine group has been synthesized for use as a red fluorescent dye molecule in organic light-emitting di- odes (OLEDs). In this paper, we reported a facile, simple and inexpensive procedure of purification of DCJ without necessity of HPLC analysis. The maximum absorption, emission, quantum efficiency are increasing in DCJ with the electron-donating of julolidine group.
