Abstract

A quantum chemical study was performed on ten different self-doping PPV oligomers. The geometry and the different weak intramolecular interactions were studied. The atomic spin populations were calculated using the FOHI method and related to the calculated EPR parameters. The effects of the removal of methoxy groups, the introduction of nitrogen atoms, and the relocation of the self-doping sidechain on the geometry, the spin distribution, and the EPR parameters have been described.
