Abstract

Highly luminescent dendron-substituted copolyfluorenes that incorporate surface-modified cadmium sulfide nanoparticles have been prepared. A small percentage of these nanoparticles can be incorporated into the dendritic structures upon tailoring the interfaces between the ligands on the nanoparticles and the dendritic structures in the copolyfluorene. Both the photoluminescence and electroluminescence efficiencies of the polymer nanocomposites are dramatically enhanced-sometimes more than doubled-relative to the values of the pure polymer.
