1,4-Diaryl-1-thio-1,3-butadiene derivatives having a π-donor dimethylamino group and several π-acceptor substituents at both terminals of the conjugated system were synthesized by intramolecular [4 + 2] cycloaddition of 1-thio-enynes and subsequent chemical transformations. They displayed largely red-shifted absorption and emission spectra in solution, the powder state, and in polymer films. The derivatives with a 2,2-dicyanoethenyl group as the π-acceptor exhibited inverted solvatochromism in both optical absorption and fluorescence spectroscopies.
