We report on the optical and photo-physical properties of a fluorinated poly(p-phenylenevinylene) derivative, namely poly(2-methoxy-5-[(2-ethylhexyl)oxy]-1,4-phenylenedifluorovinylene) (MEH-PPDFV) and we compare them with those of the well-known non fluorinated reference system, poly(2-methoxy-5-[(2-ethylhexyl)oxy]-1,4-phenylenevinylene) (MEH-PPV) synthesized with the same procedure. Remarkable blue-shifts of absorption and emission spectra of MEH-PPDFV with respect to MEH-PPV are observed, due to the larger distortion from planarity of the fluorinated species. In addition, the blue-shift for optical transitions in absorption spectra is more pronounced than in emission ones, since the molecule conformation in the excited states is more planar than in the ground one. Microsecond photo-induced absorption spectra of MEH-PPDFV reveal three bands possessing spectral properties and/or kinetics different from those observed for MEH-PPV. The assignment of these transitions is provided in terms of free and trapped polarons as well of triplet excitons. Free-polarons have an intrinsic decay constant of 3 μs, while the trapping dynamics has a longer kinetics of 40 μs. The triplet exciton, instead, shows a monoexponetial decay behavior of constant about 10 μs.
