Abstract

A new blue emitter oxadiazole/carbazole copolymer has been synthesized and combined with CdSe/ZnS quantum dots (QDs). Surface passivation of the QDs by ionic liquids was crucial to improve their compatibility with the polymer allowing the deposition of homogeneous nanocomposites films. The nanocomposites have been characterized by thermogravimetric analysis, infrared, UV-visible absorption, and photoluminescence spectroscopy. The emission spectra of nanocomposites show a wide spectrum from blue to orange wavelengths due to the combination of colors emitted by the polymer and QDs, respectively. © 2013 Society of Plastics Engineers.
