Fluorescent oligomers where the backbone of dibenzothiophene-S,S-dioxide acts as the acceptor and side chains of aryl methoxy, fluorene, and arylamine act as the donors have been effectively synthesized by the palladium-catalyzed Suzuki coupling reactions, and the photo-physical properties of the compounds were investigated. From the single-crystal XRD patterns the compounds reveal a twisted conformation with an intramolecular structure and show close relationship between intramolecular or intermolecular charge transfer and their photo-physical properties. These patterns provide more comprehensive information, which is unattainable from 1H NMR and 2D-COSY spectra. The emission spectrum in the range of 450-510 nm can be finely tuned by systematically altering the position of substitution on the donor units of side chains connected with the backbone acceptor. The fabricated devices displayed a sky blue to deep green in terms of color and performed the CIE (x,y) coordinates with values of (0.18-0.21, 0.25-0.46), respectively.
