A family of linear oligofluorene-BODIPY structures, containing either a ter- or quaterfluorene unit, have been prepared, in which the attachment of the oligofluorene chain to the BODIPY unit is switched between the meso-and beta-positions. Each member of this family was investigated by UV-vis absorption and photoluminescence spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry and thermal studies (TGA and DSC) to determine their suitability as emissive layers in hybrid luminescent devices. One candidate was then successfully deployed as a down converter to convert UV to visible light.
