A novel silole deriv., 1,1-dimethyl-2,3,4,5-tetraanisole silole, has been synthesized and characterized in dioxane and THF solns. The characterization involved detg. absorption and luminescence emission properties, luminescence quantum yields, and excited state lifetimes in each of the solvents. A study of aggregation-induced emission in dioxane/water and THF/water systems and a detn. of electrochem. properties will also be described. The results will be compared to those for 1,1-dimethyl-2,3,4,5-tetraphenyl silole and 1,1-dimethyl-2,3,4,5-tetratolyl silole to illustrate the effect of a strongly electron-donating substituent on silole properties.
