The cathode is typically any material (such as, e.g., Ca or Ba) that has the ability to inject electrons into the EL material. The buffer layer is typically an electrically conducting polymer and facilitates the injection of holes from the anode into the EL material layer. The buffer layer may also have other properties which facilitate device performance.

  • DETAILED DISCLOSURE
  • Aqueous electrically conducting polymer dispersions are generally made by oxidative polymerization of a conjugated monomer in the presence of a non-fluorinated polymeric acid. The conducting polymers have low conductivity and low work function, which limit their use for many applications.
  • This disclosure presents techniques for addition of a perfluorinated polymeric acid (PFA) to the aqueous polymer dispersions to achieve the high conductivity and high work function. The PFA can be first dissolved or dispersed in a high boiling polar solvent, such as ethylene glycol, dimethylsulfoxide, dimethylacetamide, N-methylpyrrolidine, and the like. Boiling point of the high boiling solvents is preferably above 120° C. The PFA can also be first dissolved or dispersed in a mixture of a high boiling polar solvent. The addition can also be carried out by first adding a high boiling solvent to the aqueous polymer dispersion followed with a PFA solution or dispersion in water or by a reverse order of addition.
  • Initial conductivity of an aqueous conducting polymer dispersion should be at least 0.1 S (Siemens)/cm to achieve conductivity greater than 100 S/cm and work function greater than 5.1 eV after addition of a PFA polymer. For purposes of the information conveyed in this disclosure, the acid equivalent ratio of PFA to the non-fluorinated polymeric acid should be no more than 1.
  • In this disclosure, conjugated monomer includes thiophene, selenophene, 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene, 3,4-ethylenedioxyselenophene, thienothiophene, thienoselenophene, and the like, pyrroles, and their comonomers. The polymeric acids are perfluorinated. The perfluoropolymeric acids (PFA) are preferably perfluoroolefins having perfluoro-ether-sulfonic acid side chains. pKa of the acids in water is preferably less than −5. The perfluoropolymeric acids include Nafion® polymer, a registered trademark of E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, Wilmington, Del., for copolymer of TFE (tetrafluoroethylene) and PSEPVE (3,6-dioxa-4-methyl-7-octenesulfonic acid). The acid also includes high molecular weight of perfluorinated sulfonimides.
  • For illustration of an embodiment of the disclosure, aqueous Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene), PEDOT,/PSSA conducting polymer dispersion is added with a Nafion® polymer, P-(TFE-PSEPVE). Electrical conductivity greater than 100 S/cm and work function greater than 5.1 eV, as has been illustrated.
  • The high conductivity and high work function conducting polymer compositions can be used alone as anode without ITO. It is also useful as polymer solid cathodes in tantalum and aluminum capacitors. It should be also useful as a transparent conductor for photovoltaic cells and transparent coatings.
  • A) General Procedure of Sample Preparation and Workfunction Measurement:
  • The materials illustrated in Examples and Comparative Examples were spin-coated at a spin speed of 2,000 rpm for one minute on 30 mm×30 mm glass/indium/tin semiconductive oxide (ITO) substrates. The ITO/glass substrates consist of 15 mm×20 mm ITO area at the center having ITO thickness of 100 to 150 nm. At one corner of 15 mm×20 mm ITO area, ITO film surface extended to the edge of the glass/TO serves as electrical contact with one of two Kelvin probe electrodes. Prior to spin coating, ITO/glass substrates were cleaned and the ITO side was subsequently treated with oxygen plasma for 15 minutes. Once spin-coated with an aqueous sample dispersion, the deposited layer on the corner of the extended ITO film was removed with a water-wetted cotton-swath tip. The exposed ITO pad was used to make contact with the one of two electrodes of a Kelvin probe. The deposited film was then dried in air at a hot-plate set at 200° C. for 10 minutes. The dried film samples in the range of ˜30 nm thickness were then placed in a glass jug filled with nitrogen before capped till measurement.
  • For energy potential measurement, ambient-aged gold film was measured first as a reference prior to measurement of samples. The gold film on a same size of glass was placed in a cavity cut out at the bottom of a square steel container. On the side of the cavity, there are four retention clips to keep sample piece firmly in place. One of the retention clips is attached with electrical wire. The retention clip attached with the electrical wire was clipped on the ITO at the corner for making contact with the one of two electrodes of the Kelvin probe. The gold film was facing up a Kelvin probe tip protruded from the center of a steel lid, which was lowered to slightly above the center of the gold film surface. The lid was then screwed tightly onto the square steel container at four corners. A side port on the square steel container was connected with a tubing to allow nitrogen to sweep the Kelvin probe cell while a nitrogen exit port was capped with a septum in which a steel needle was inserted to maintain ambient pressure. The probe settings were then optimized for the probe and only height of the tip was adjusted during the measurement. The Kelvin probe tip was part of the second electrode which was also connected to a McAllister KP6500 Kelvin Probe meter having the following parameters: 1) frequency (Hz): 230; 2) amplitude (arbitrary): 20; 3) DC offset (volt): varied from sample to sample; 4) upper backing potential (volt): 2; 5) lower backing potential (volt): −2; 6) scan step: 1; 7) trigger delay (degree per full cycle): 0; 8) acquisition(A)/data(D) points:1024; 9) A/D rate (Hz): 12405 @19.0 cycles; 10) D/A delay (milliseconds): 200; 11) set point gradient (unitless): 0.2; 12) step size (volt): 0.001; 13) maximum gradient deviation (volt): 0.001. As soon as the tracking gradient stabilized, the contact potential differential or CPD (expressed in volts) between gold film and probe tip was recorded. The CPD of gold and the probe tip was checked periodically to ensure reliable reference for calculation of energy potential of samples. For CPD measurement of samples with the probe tip, each sample was loaded into the cavity in the same manner as gold film sample. On the retention clip that makes electrical contact with the sample, extra care was taken to ensure that good electrical contact was made with the exposed ITO pad. During the CPD measurement a small stream of nitrogen was flown through the cell without disturbing the probe tip. Once CPD of a sample was recorded, work function of the sample was calculated by adding CPD of the sample to the difference of 4.7 eV and CPD of gold. 4.7 eV is the work function of an ambient-aged gold film [Surface Science, 316, (1994), P380]. The measured work function of a material is thus determined as required energy for removing electron from the surface of the material.
  • B) General Procedure of Film Sample Preparation, Four-Probe Electrical Resistance Measurement and Calculation of Electrical Conductivity:
  • One drop of each dispersion sample was spread on a 3″×1″ microscope slide to cover ⅔ area of the slide. Excess of liquid was tilted to one edge of the slide to be soaked-up by a tissue. Once a smooth, homogeneous layer of liquid was ensured, the slide was placed on a flat surface for initial drying at room temperature. The slide was then placed on a hot plate set at 200° C. Once the hot plate reached the temperature monitored with a surface thermometer, it was kept at the temperature for additional 5 minutes. The whole operation was carried out in air. The slide was removed from the hot plate and the film was trimmed to a long strip with a razor blade. Width of the strip ranged from 0.2 cm to 0.7 cm and the length was about 3 cm. Silver paste was then painted perpendicular to the length of the strip to form four electrodes. The two inner parallel electrodes were about 0.3 cm to 0.5 cm apart and were connected to a Keithley model 616 electrometer for measurement of voltage when a known current supplied by a Keithley model 225 Current Source was applied to the two other parallel electrodes. A series of corresponding current/voltage data obtained at room temperature was recorded to see whether Ohm's law was followed. All the samples in Examples and Comparative Examples followed Ohm's law, which provided a more or less identical resistance for the corresponding current/voltage data. Once measured was done, the area in the two inner electrodes was measured for thickness with a Profilometer. Since resistance, thickness, separation length of the two inner electrodes and the width of the filmstrip are known, electrical conductivity is then calculated. The conductivity unit is expressed as S (Siemens)/cm.
  • EXAMPLES Comparative Example 1
  • This example illustrates electrical conductivity and workfunction of an electrically conductive poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene), PEDOT,/poly(styrenesulfonic acid), PSSA.
  • PEDOT-PSSA is a well-known electrically conductive polymer. The polymer dispersed in water is commercially available from H. C. Starck GmbH (Leverkuson, Germany) in several grades under a trade name of Baytron®-P (a registered trademark of H.C. Starck). Baytron®-P HCV4, one of the commercial aqueous dispersion products, purchased from Starck was used to establish baselines of electrical conductivity and work function. The Baytron®-P HCV4 sample was determined gravimetrically to have 1.01% (w/w) solid, which should be PEDOT/PSSA in water. According to the product brochure, weight ratio of PEDOT:PSSA is 1:2.5.
  • Viscosity of the PEDOT-PSSA was very high, therefore deionized water was used to reduce viscosity for convenience of making homogeneous films. 2.5026 g Baytron®-P HCV4 was slowly added with 2.5106 g deionized water. This dilution reduces PEDOT-PSSA solid to about 0.50% (w/w). The mixture was then stirred with a shaker for two hours to ensure thorough mixing. Film samples preparation and film baking for conductivity and work function measurements were described in both general procedures. Work function was determined to be 4.97 eV. Conductivity of four film samples was determined to be 6.9, 13.4, 5.3, and 14.4 S/cm. The work-function is quite low and will be compared with those in Examples, which show about 0.5 to 0.6 eV higher.
  • Comparative Example 2
  • This example illustrates effect of ethylene glycol, a high boiling solvent, on increase of electrical conductivity, but not on workfunction of Baytron®-P HCV4.
  • Unlike Comparative Example 1, which only used water, this comparative example used a ˜10% solution of ethylene glycol in water. The 10% solution was made by adding 0.9996 g ethylene glycol to 9.0098 g water. 2.53 g of the ethylene/water solution were added slowly to 2.5424 g HCV4. The amount of the solution also reduced PEDOT-PSSA to about 0.51%. The mixture was stirred with a shaker for two hours to ensure thorough mixing. The amount of ethylene glycol/water solution represents 5.0% (w/w) ethylene glycol in the diluted HCV4. Film preparation for conductivity measurement was described in the general procedure. Conductivity of two film samples was measured to be 303.14 S/cm, and 223.0 S/cm. This conductivity data is in line with the data cited by H. C. Starck GmbH in the Company's website where they report minimum conductivity of 200 S/cm by adding 5% dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), which is a high boiling solvent. A more direct comparison will be shown in Comparative Example 3 where DMSO was used. It is well known in open arts that high boiling solvent such as ethylene glycol, dimethylsulfoxide and the like can greatly enhance electrical conductivity of PEDOT-PSSA.
  • A similar mixture prepared according to the same amount of each component and same recipe was used for work-function measurement. It was determined to have work-function of 4.95 eV. Although conductivity has increased to 10-20 times when compared with addition of water alone, but work-function remains the same as that in Comparative Example 1 where only water was used for dilution. The work-function is quite low and will be compared with those in Examples, which show about 0.5 eV to 0.6 eV higher.
  • Comparative Example 3
  • This example illustrates effect of dimethylsulfoxide, a high boiling solvent, on increase of electrical conductivity, but not on work-function of Baytron®-P HCV4.
  • Unlike Comparative Example 1, which only used water, this comparative example used a ˜10% solution of dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) in water. The 10% solution was made by adding 1.0034 g DMSO to 9.0033 g water. 3.0097 g of the solution were added slowly to 3.0196 g HCV4. The amount of the solution also reduced PEDOT-PSSA to about 0.51%. The mixture was stirred with a shaker for two hours to ensure thorough mixing. The amount of DMSO/water solution represents 5.0% (w/w) DMSO in the diluted HCV4. Film preparation for conductivity measurement was described in the general procedure. Conductivity of two film samples was measured to be 219.2 S/cm, and 307.0 S/cm, respectively. This conductivity data is in line with the data cited by H. C. Starck GmbH in the Company's website where they report minimum conductivity of 200 S/cm by adding 5% dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO).
  • A similar mixture prepared according to the same amount of each component and same recipe shown above was used for work-function measurement. It was determined to have work-function of 4.97 eV. Although conductivity has increased to 10-20 times compared with addition of water alone, but work-function remains the same. The work-function is quite low and will be compared with those in Examples, which show about 0.5 eV to 0.6 eV higher.
  • Example 1
  • This example illustrates enhancement of work function without losing high electrical conductivity by adding a Nafion® polymer contained in ethylene glycol to Baytron®-P HCV4.
  • Nafion® polymer, a perfluoropolymeric acid, for copolymer of TFE (tetrafluoroethylene) and PSEPVE (3,6-dioxa-4-methyl-7-octenesulfonic acid). Nafion® polymer, P-(TFE-PSEPVE), used in this example was obtained by slow removing of water from an aqueous dispersion of Nafion® in vacuum at the temperature below 10° C. The aqueous dispersion of Nafion® was prepared by heating P-(TFE/PSEPVE) having EW (equivalent weight: weight of the polymer per one sulfonic acid group) of 1050 in water only to ˜270° C. The aqueous Nafion® dispersion had 25% (w/w) P-(TFE/PSEPVE) in water and was diluted to ˜12% with deionized water prior to removing water for collecting P-(TFE-PSEPVE). The collected P-(TFE-PSEPVE) solids were soluble or dispersible in many high polar solvents or mixture of the solvent with water. It should be pointed out that any perfluoropolymeric acids (PFA) could be obtained by removing liquid medium from aqueous or non-aqueous dispersion or solution at a temperature less than the “coalescence temperature” of the PFA. By “coalescence temperature” is meant the temperature at which a dried solid of the PFA is cured to a stable solid which is not redispersible in water, other polar solvent or mixture of the polar solvent.
  • Before mixing with Baytron®-P HCV4, a Nafion® polymer/ethylene glycol solution and an ethylene glycol/water solution were prepared first. The latter solution was for reducing PEDOT-PSSA solid % of HCV4 as done in the previous comparative examples, therefore reducing its viscosity. 0.7541 g P-(TFE-PSEPVE) having EW of 1050 was added to 9.2534 g water n a glass vial. The mixture was heated to ˜120° C. until P-(TFE-PSEPVE) solids were all dissolved. Weight % (w/w) of P-(TFE-PSEPVE) in the ethylene glycol solution is 7.51%. A ˜10% (w/w) ethylene glycol in water was made by adding 0.9996 g ethylene glycol to 9.0098 g water. To 5.0833 g Baytron®-P HCV4 was first added slowly with 0.5872 g poly(TFE-PSEPVE)/ethylene glycol solution. To the mixture, 5.5310 g ethylene glycol/water solution was added to reduce PEDOT-PSSA polymer solid %, which became 0.46%. The combined amount of water/ethylene glycol solution and P-(TFE-PSEPVE)/ethylene glycol represents 9.8% (w/w) ethylene glycol in the final formulation of HCV4. Based on the amount of PEDOT-PSSA and P-(TFE-PSEPVE), acid equivalent ratio of P-(TFE-PSEPVE) to PSSA is 0.21. This ratio is used for specifying optimal concentration of P-(TFE-PSEPVE) with respect to PSSA for overall consideration of desired electrical conductivity and work-function.
  • Film preparation for conductivity measurement was described in the general procedure. Conductivity of two film samples was measured to be 357.8 S/cm, and 291.1 S/cm. A similar mixture prepared according to the same amount of each component and same recipe shown above was used for work-function measurement. It was determined to have work-function of 5.54 eV. The work-function is about 0.5 eV higher than those in Comparative Examples 1, 2 and 3. It should be also pointed out that electrical conductivity retains at about the same as those in Comparative Examples 2 and 3.
  • Example 2
  • This example illustrates enhancement of work function without losing high electrical conductivity by adding a higher amount of Nafion®polymer contained in dimethylsulfoxide to Baytron®-P HCV4.
  • A Nafion® polymer, P-(TFE-PSEPVE), used Example 1 was used here. Before mixing with Baytron®-P HCV4, a Nafion® polymer/dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) solution and a DMSO/water solution were prepared first. The latter solution was for reducing PEDOT-PSSA solid % of HCV4 as done in the previous comparative examples and Examples, therefore reducing its viscosity. 1.0510 g P-(TFE-PSEPVE) having EW of 1050 was added to 8.9686 g water in a glass vial. The mixture was heated to 120° C. until P-(TFE-PSEPVE) solids were all dissolved. Weight % (w/w) of P-(TFE-PSEPVE) in the DMSO solution is 10.49%. A ˜10% (w/w) DMSO in water was made by adding 1.0034 g DMSO to 9.0035 g water. To 2.5048 g Baytron-P HCV4 was first added slowly with 2.5192 g DMSO/water solution to reduce PEDOT-PSSA solid %, which became 0.48%. To the mixture, 0.2023 g DMSO/P-(TFE-PSEPVE) solution was added. The combined amount of water/DMSO solution and P-(TFE-PSEPVE)/DMSO represents 8.3% (w/w) DMSO in the final formulation of HCV4. Based on the amount of PEDOT-PSSA and P-(TFE-PSEPVE), acid equivalent ratio of P-(TFE-PSEPVE) to PSSA is 0.21. This ratio is used for specifying optimal concentration of P-(TFE-PSEPVE) with respect to PSSA for overall consideration of desired electrical conductivity and work-function.
  • Film preparation for conductivity measurement was described in the general procedure. Conductivity of two film samples was measured to be 267.3 S/cm, and 231.3 S/cm. This data shows that adding a P-(TFE-PSEPVE) polymer to HCV4 still preserve the conductivity. Work function of this material has not been performed, but I should expect a value similar to 5.54 eV presented in Example 1, but will be slightly lower than that (5.64 eV) in Example 3.
  • Example 3
  • This example illustrates enhancement of work function without losing high electrical conductivity by adding a higher (compared with that of Examples 1 and 2) amount of Nafion® polymer to Baytron®-P HCV4.
  • A Nafion® polymer, P-(TFE-PSEPVE), used Example 1 was used here. Before mixing with Baytron®-P HCV4, a Nafion® polymer/ethylene solution and a DMSO/water solution were prepared first. The latter solution was for reducing PEDOT-PSSA solid % of HCV4 as done in the previous comparative examples and Examples, therefore reducing its viscosity. 0.7541 g P-(TFE-PSEPVE) having EW of 1050 was added to 9.2534 g water in a glass vial. The mixture was heated to ˜120° C. until P-(TFE-PSEPVE) solids were all dissolved. Weight % (w/w) of P-(TFE-PSEPVE) in the DMSO solution is 7.51%. A ˜10% (w/w) DMSO in water was made by adding 1.0034 g DMSO to 9.0035 g water. To 2.5066 g Baytron®-P HCV4 was first added slowly with 3.0132 g DMSO/water solution to reduce PEDOT-PSSA solid %, which became 0.48%. To the mixture, 0.0.5666 g P-(TFE-PSEPVE)/ethylene glycol solution was added. The combined amount of water/DMSO solution and P-(TFE-PSEPVE)/ethylene glycol represents 14.2% (w/w) of combined DMSO and ethylene glycol in the final formulation of HCV4. Based on the amount of PEDOT-PSSA and P-(TFE-PSEPVE), acid equivalent ratio of P-(TFE-PSEPVE) to PSSA is 0.41. This ratio is used for specifying optimal concentration of P-(TFE-PSEPVE) with respect to PSSA for overall consideration of desired electrical conductivity and work-function.
  • Film preparation for conductivity measurement was described in the general procedure. Conductivity of two film samples was measured to be 153.9 S/cm, and 191.7 S/cm. This data shows that adding a P-(TFE-PSEPVE) polymer to HCV4 still has the conductivity, but may start to lose ground if equivalent ratio of P-(TFE-PSEPVE) to PSSA gets much higher than 0.41. A similar mixture prepared according to the same amount of each component and same recipe shown above was used for work-function measurement. It was determined to have work-function of 5.64 eV. The work-function is about 0.6 eV higher than those in Comparative Examples 1, 2 and 3 and shows that 0.41 equivalent ratio of P-(TFE-PSSA) to PSSA provides a slightly higher work-function than 0.21 equivalent ratio. This again, points out that equivalent ratio should be kept below 1, preferably below 0.6.
  • Comparative Example 4
  • This example illustrates minimum conductivity of an electrically conductive polymer for conductivity enhancement with addition of a high boiling solvent.
  • In this Comparative Example, Baytron®-P PH500, an aqueous dispersion of PEDOT-PSSA from H. C. Starck GmbH (Leverkuson, Germany) was used to establish minimum conductivity requirement for reaching conductivity higher than 100 S/cm with a high boiling solvent. The Baytron®-P PH500 sample was determined gravimetrically to have 1.0% (w/w) solid, which should be PEDOT/PSSA in water. According to the product brochure, weight ratio of PEDOT:PSSA is 1:2.5.
  • Viscosity of Baytron®-P PH500 is much lower than that of Baytron®-P HCV4, therefore there is no need to dilute for preparing thin films for conductivity measurement. Conductivity of two film samples was determined to be 0.85 and 0.53 S/cm. The conductivity is also much lower than that of Baytron®-P HCV4. However, Example 4 shown below will demonstrate increased conductivity by adding a Nafion® polymer, P-(TFE-PSEPVE), dissolved in ethylene glycol.
  • Example 4
  • This example illustrates conductivity enhancement of Baytron®-P PH500 by adding a Nafion® polymer contained in ethylene glycol.
  • A Nafion® polymer, P-(TFE-PSEPVE), used Example 1 was used here. Before mixing with Baytron®-P PH500, a Nafion® polymer/ethylene glycol solution was prepared first. 1.0512 g P-(TFE-PSEPVE) having EW of 1050 was added to 8.8.9517 g ethylene glycol in a glass vial. The mixture was heated to ˜120° C. until P-(TFE-PSEPVE) solids were all dissolved. Weight % (w/w) of P-(TFE-PSEPVE) in the ethylene glycol solution is 10.51%. To 5.0012 g Baytron®-P PH500 was first added slowly with 0.3680 g P-(TFE-PSEPVE)/ethylene glycol solution. The amount of P-(TFE-PSEPVE)/ethylene glycol represents 6.13% (w/w) ethylene glycol in the final formulation of PH500. Based on the amount of PEDOT-PSSA and P-(TFE-PSEPVE), acid equivalent ratio of P-(TFE-PSEPVE) to PSSA is 0.19.
  • Film preparation for conductivity measurement was described in the general procedure. Conductivity of two film samples was measured to be 288.7 S/cm, and 449.4 S/cm. This data shows that adding a P-(TFE-PSEPVE) polymer to PH500 has greatly enhanced conductivity of PH500. This data shows that minimum conductivity for conductivity enhancement to greater than 100 S/cm should be greater than 0.1 S/cm. Work function of this material has not been performed, but I should expect a value similar to 5.54 eV presented in Example 1, but will be slightly lower than that (5.64 eV) in Example 3.
