Molecularly doped polymers are replacing inorganic photoreceptors in modern electrophotography. A future aim is to replace inorganic materials in light-emitting diodes, but this required polymers that luminesce and are also processible in teir polymeric from. A promising candidate is poly(p-phenylphenylenevinylene), shown in the figure.
