Abstract

Photo- and electroactive amorphous molecular materials are attractive for use in electronics, for example in pn heterojunction-type photovoltaic devices or in electroluminescent devices. The title compound (based on that in the Figure) exhibits a high glass transition temperature, hardly crystallizing even above this temperature making it especially suitable for electronics applications.
