Abstract (300 words maximum)

Azaborines are fascinating compounds because of their valuable and interesting optical properties making them suitable to be utilized in many optoelectronic devices. We have designed, synthesized, and investigated a series of novel conjugated thermally stable azaborine chromophores by incorporating a phenyl ring as a spacer linking the chromophore to different electronic moieties as easily tunable high-luminescent organic materials. We investigated the effect of the phenyl spacer on the azaborine unit. The substituent effects of different electronic moieties were investigated by the insertion of electron –withdrawing and –donating moieties to the phenyl spacer. We examined the role of the electron –donating and –withdrawing substituents on the HOMO and LUMO energies to aid in understanding the fluorescence tunability.

Azaborine versus Azaborine with a Spacer: Structural Effects on the Photophysical Properties of Tunable Azaborine Chromophores
