We report a study of photoinduced charge separation in poly(1,4-phenylenevinylene) (PPV) derivatives with enhanced exciton dissociation using light-induced electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR). Four polymers were studied; all contained alkoxy and fluorenyl side chain units, and two of them also contained a nitro group on the 7-positon of the fluorenyl moieties. Pulsed EPR detected a light induced polaron for all the polymers with the intensity significantly higher for those with nitro groups....[Show more]
