Abstract

The preparation of the 3,6-disubstituted dibenzosilole monomers , and by two different routes is described; Suzuki copolymerisation afforded poly(9,9-dioctyl-3,6-dibenzosilole) which has a sufficiently high triplet energy (2.55 eV) to function as a host for green electrophosphorescent emitters.
