Abstract: Six novel 2,5-bis[4-(2-arylvinyl)phenyl]-1,3,4-oxadiazoles were synthesized by introducing 1,3,4-oxadiazole moiety into the stilbene skeleton. The synthesis route included the cyclization of p-toluic acid and hydrazine hydrate catalyzed by polyphosphoric acid (PPA), bromination of 1,3-dibromo-5,5-dimethylhydantoin (DBDMH), esterification, and the Wittig-Horner reaction. All the title compounds were characterized by ^1H-NMR, MS, and elemental analysis. UV-Vis absorption and fluorescence emission spectra in THF solution were investigated; the compounds may have potential for use in organic optical materials.
Keywords: Stilbene, 1,3,4-oxadiazole, synthesis.
