Chemical Properties

Melting point


2,7-Dibromofluorene is used as a template for the N-carbazole capped oligofluorenes which show potential as hole-transporting materials for organic light emitting devices (OLEDs). It is also used in the synthesis of conjugated polymer, poly[9,9?-bis(6??-N,N,N-trimethylammonium)hexyl)fluorene-co-alt-4,7-(2,1,3-benzothiadiazole) dibromide] (PFBT), used in label-free DNA microarrays, in the preparation of blue photoluminescent unsymmetrically substituted polyfluorene and in the preparation of 2,7-dibromofluorene monomers containing benzyl ether dendrons (generations 1, 2 and 3) in the 9,9?-position of the fluorene ring, such as: 9,9-bis[(3,5-bis(benzyloxy)benzyloxy)methyl]-2,7-dibromofluorene, 9,9-bis[(3,5-bis(3,5-bis(benzyloxy)benzyloxy)benzyloxy)-methyl] 2,7-dibromo-fluorene, 9,9-bis[(3,5-bis(3,5-bis(3,5-bis(benzyloxy)benzyloxy)benzyloxy) benzyloxy)-methyl]-2,7-dibromofluorene.


Keep container tightly sealed. Store in cool, dry conditions in well sealed containers. Incompatible with oxidizing agents.
