In recent years, organic electro luminescent (EL) materials have received considerable attention due to their potential application in next-generation display devices with high brightness levels, wide color ranges, and wide viewing angles. Fluorescent 2-pyrone derivatives have been synthesized using a convenient method involving ketene dithioacetals, which emit fluorescence (red, green, and blue) in both solution (dichloromethane and ethanol) and solid state. The structure-activity relationships of various 2-pyrone derivatives have been clarified.
