General description

Super yellow light emitting PPV copolymer can form a thin film of poly(1,4-phenylenevinylene) (PPV) with high efficiencies. It has conjugated polymers as the backbone that can be soluble in water upon the incorporation of lipophilic solubilizing linkers.


  • soluble super yellow light-emitting PPV copolymer
  • excellent reproducibility
  • broad emission spectrum
  • very high efficiency
  • very low operation voltage/for PM 100000 cd/m2 pulsed <10 V
  • very long DC & AC lifetime

Typical performance measured in standard device stack (ITO/PEDOT: PSS 20 nm/PDY-132 80 nm/Ba 6 nm/Ag 150 nm):
  • max. efficiency: 11 Cd/A
  • V_on: 2.2 V
  • V @ 100 cd/m2: 3.0 V
  • V @ 1000 cd/m2: 4.3 V
  • max. power eff.: 10 lm/W
  • external quantum eff.: 5.3%
  • CIE1931 @ 100 cd/m2: (0.50, 0.49)
  • DC lifetime @ 100 cd/m2 @ RT: >>220000
  • AC lifetime @ 200 cd/m2 @ RT: 11000
PDY-132 can be used in the preparation of electroluminescent line material, which can be used for making line art by direct-write patterning. It can also be used as a fluorescent material with the absorption peak at 450 nm, that can be developed by blade coating on the substrates of the transfer printed micro-sized light emitting diodes (μLED).
