We present the synthesis and characterization of soluble, high molecular weight phenyl-substituted poly(p-phenylenevinylenes). The studied polymers are poly(2-(2',5'-bis(2?-ethylhexyloxy)phenyl)- 1,4-phenylenevinylene) (BEHP-PPV) and copolymers of BEHP-PPV and poly(2-methoxy-5-(2'-ethylhexyloxy)-1,4-phenylenevinylene) (MEH-PPV). Their photoluminescence and electroluminescence have been examined as well as their stability to air and light. The polymers emitted green and yellow light. Stability measurements showed increased stability compared to some previously known substituted PPVs.
