Epub 2014 Aug 21.The electrogenerated chemiluminescence (ECL) of a carbazole thiophene cyanoacrylate dye ((2-cyano-3-[5"'-(9-ethyl-9H-carbazol-3-yl)-3',3",3"',4-tetra-n-hexyl-[2,2',5',2",5",2"']-quarter-thiophenyl-5yl]acrylate) = MK-2) has been investigated in solution, where the maximum ECL wavelength occurs at 640 nm, and in a thin film on an ITO surface, where the ECL is substantially red-shifted to 730 nm. The ECL intensity for the solution annihilation reaction is relatively weak, whereas a much higher ECL intensity is measured with oxalate as a co-reactant. Read More
