Abstract

A new neutral state green polymer, poly (2,3-bis(4-tert-butylphenyl)-5,8-di(1H-pyrrol-2-yl) quinoxaline) (PTBPPQ) was synthesized and its potential use as an electrochromic material was investigated. Spectroelectrochemistry studies showed that polymer reveals two distinct absorption bands as expected for a donor-acceptor type polymer, at 408 and 745 nm. In addition, polymer has excellent switching properties with satisfactory optical contrasts and very short switching times. Outstanding optical contrast in the NIR region and stability make this polymer a great candidate for many applications. It should be noted that PTBPPQ is one of the few examples of neutral state green polymeric materials with superior switching properties. Hence, PTBPPQ can be used as a green polymeric material for display technologies.
