New series of blue light emitting diphenylquinoline (DPQ) and its derivatives based on Chlorine-Methoxy (Cl-MO-DPQ) and Chlorine-Methyl (Cl-M-DPQ) were synthesized in Argon atmosphere at 140?C by Fried- lander condensation. These all samples were soluble in many organic solvents like Acetic acid, Formic acid, Dichloromethane etc. in different molar concentrations up to micro molar. It emits blue light in above sol- vents under UV source. All samples in different organic solvents were studied. Structural characterization was made by FTIR. Ultraviolet, fluorescence and excitation spectroscopy were used for analysis of photo physical properties. Thermal properties were characterized by TGA and SDTA. The derivatives Cl-MO-DPQ and Cl-M-DPQ show absorbance peaks in the range 264 - 370 nm and 264 - 338 nm respectively. In both the cases the emission spectra are in blue region. The TGA and SDTA studies show not only the DPQ but also it’s derivatives have good thermal stability even though they are low molecular weight organic compounds, which may in turn improve the stability and operating lifetime of the device. The physical and chemical properties of these polymers are useful as a blue emitting organic material for OLED’s.
