A new blue emitting material containing quinoline is designed, synthesized and characterized. The material has been prepared by well-known reaction such as Friedlander condensation reaction at 140 °C. The blended thin films of Trichloro-DPQ with poly (methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) at different weight % concentrations such as 10, 5, 1 and 0.1 weight % have been prepared. The structural characterization has been done by FTIR spectra. The synthesized polymeric compound demonstrates emission in blue region at 460 nm in powder form. At different weight % concentrations, there is emission at 444 nm with varying intensity. The light emitting and optoelectronic property of polymeric compound may find application in electroluminescence, OLED and sensors.
