Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The synthesis, spectro-electrochemical study, and electrochemical polymerization of bis(diphenylamino) substituted ferrocenes (Fcs), including the family of the 1,3,4-oxadiazole (OXD) bridged 1,1′-[p-(Ph2N)(C6H4)nOXD]2Fc and the vinylene bridged ferrocene 1,1′-[p-(Ph2N)(C6H4)-(E)-CHCH]2Fc, have been carried out. The ferrocene compounds underwent three stepwise one-electron oxidations to form the (3+) radical cations that further electrochemically polymerized on a Pt or an indium tin oxide (ITO) electrode surface. The polymeric layers showed extremely good hole-injection properties. The polymeric light emitting devices (PLEDs) of ITO/ED-1,1′-[Ph2N(C6H4)3OXD]2Fc/PVK:Ir(PPy)3:PBD/Mg-Ag showed a turn-on voltage (at 100 cd/m2) of 11 V, with a maximum brightness of 27 700 cd/m2. The turn-on voltage was 1.5 V lower than that of the poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene)poly(styrenesulfonate) based PLED and 2 V lower than the corresponding electrochemically deposited poly(4-(N,N-diphenylamino)styrene) based PLED.
