A BODIPY-based small-molecule photopatterned surface by thiol-ene click chemistry was prepared at room temperature using only 366 nm UV light.
We demonstrate a BODIPY-based small molecule photopatterned surface by thiol-ene click chemistry at room temperature utilizing only 366 nm UV light. The resulting cross-linked polymer exhibits porous surfaces according to AFM and TEM results. A dramatic blue shift occurred in absorption spectra and the photoluminescence was also intensified as a result of crosslinking. Optical and electrochemical results are compatible with the DFT calculations. The obtained results prove that the photopatterned BODIPY-based material can be easily and inexpensively applied in multilayer optoelectronic devices.Zum Volltext
