Abstract

Two novel donor-acceptor type, spiro-configured, fluorene derivatives 3',6'-bis(octyloxy)-2,7-di(thiophen-2-yl)spiro[fluorene-9,9'-xanthene] (TXT) and 2,7-bis(2,3-dihydrothieno[3,4-b][1,4]dioxin-5-yl)-3',6'-bis(octyloxy)spiro[fluorene-9,9'-xanthene] (EXE) have been synthesized and then electropolymerized via potentiodynamic and potentiostatic methods.
