Dielectric and Dipole Moment Study of Charge Transfer Complexes of Poly(N-Vinylcarbazole) and 2,4,7-Trinitro-9-Fluorenone

  • Mohammed Fiaz


Poly(N-vinylcarbazole), PVK, is one of the most important photoconductive polymer. The stereostructure of PVK is now understood to influence significantly its electro-active properties. PVK was prepared by azobisisobutyronitrile (sample labeled F1) and borontrifluoride etherate (sample labeled F2) showed isotacticities of 25% and 55%, respectively as determined by IH and 13C N.M.R. Spectroscopy. Dipole moments of these two stereostructural samples of PVK complexed with 2,4,7-trinitro-9-fluorenone were determined in solution in 1,4-dioxane. The results are explained in terms of polymer conformation and type of charge transfer complex. The influence of temperature on dipole moments is also discussed.
