Abstract: This paper describes a simple methodology to attach luminescent groups (anthracenyl and carbazolyl) to polysiloxanes (silicone), using hydrosilylation reactions between the Si-H groups from the silicone precursor to vinyl derivatives of the lumophores. The photophysical properties of these luminescent silicones were studied using both steady-state and dynamical photoluminescence spectroscopy. A strong correlation was obtained between the structural characteristics of the anthracenyl- and carbazolyl-based polysiloxanes, depending on the amount and the position of the Si-H bonds in the silicone precursors. For sparsely distributed Si-H groups, both the anthracenyl-labeled and carbazolyl-labeled polysiloxanes showed photophysical properties (fluorescence spectrum and fluorescence decays) similar to those of 1-alkyl anthracenyl and 1-alkyl carbazolyl derivatives, respectively. Nevertheless, for closely spaced Si-H groups, emission and decay are different. The presence of excimers was observed for anthracenyl but not for carbazolyl polysiloxanes. This latter observation is quite different from that observed for carbon-based polymers for which the carbazolyl excimer formation is a very common process probably due to the differences in the silicone structure.
