Abstract: We present dynamic and static photoluminescence studies on polymer blends of conjugated poly[2-methoxy-5-(2'-ethylhexyloxy)-p-phenylenevinylene] (MEH-PPV) with polystyrene-co-1-pyrenyl methyl methacrylate and its copolymer poly(styrene-co-2-ethylhexyl acrylate-co-1-pyrenylmethyl methacrylate) (with 9 mol% and 19 mol% of 2-ethylhexyl acrylate units and 0.06 mol% of 1-pyrenyl). Pyrenyl-labeled polystyrene and its copolymers were synthesized by emulsion polymerization and characterized by 13C and ¹H-NMR, FTIR, GPC, DSC, and UV-Vis. Spin-coating films of the blends were prepared from chloroform solutions with 0.1, 0.5, 1.0, and 5.0 wt% of MEH-PPV. The miscibility of these systems was studied by non-radiative energy transfer processes between the 1-pyrenyl moieties (the energy donor) and MEH-PPV (the energy acceptor). The relative emission intensities and the fluorescence lifetimes of the donor showed that the miscibility of MEH-PPV and the copolymers is greater than that of MEH-PPV and polystyrene and this was confirmed by epifluorescence optical microscopy and scanning electron microscopy.
Nesse trabalho foram realizados estudos dinâmicos e estáticos de fotoluminescência de blendas poliméricas do poli[2-metóxi-5-(2'-etilexiloxi)-p-fenileno vinileno] (MEH-PPV) com poliestireno-co-2-co-metacrilato de metila1-1-pirenila e seu copolímero poli(estireno-co-acrilato de 2-etilexila-co-1-metacrilato de metila1-1-pirenila) (com 9 mol% e 19 mol% de unidades acrilato de 2-etilexila unidades e 0,06 mol% de 1-pirenila). O poliestireno marcado com pirenilo e alguns de seus copolímeros foram sintetizados por polimerização em emulsão e caracterizados por 13C e ¹H NMR, FTIR, GPC, DSC e UV-Vis. Os filmes foram preparados por deposição centrífuga a partir de soluções em clorofórmio, sendo a composição das blendas de 0,1, 0,5, 1,0, e 5,0 m/m% de MEH-PPV. A miscibilidade desses sistemas foi estudada através dos processos de transferência não-radiativa de energia entre o grupo 1-pirenila (doadores de energia) e o MEH-PPV (receptor de energia). A intensidade relativa de emissão e os tempos de decaimento de fluorescência do doador mostraram que a miscibilidade do MEH-PPV e dos copolímeros e maior do que entre o MEH-PPV e o poliestireno o que foi confirmado por microscopia óptica de epifluorescência e por microscopia eletrônica de varredura.
