A series of monodispersed ethynylene-linked 3,6-carbazole oligomers was synthesized by the Sonogashira coupling and deprotection protocol. The resulting conjugated carbazole oligomers were characterized by 1H-, 13C-NMR, and IR spectroscopies, and MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry. The effective conjugation length of the 3,6-carbazole structure was evaluated from the longest wavelength absorption maxima (λmax) in CH2Cl2. The λmax gradually red-shifted with the increasing carbazole unit, and this bathochromic shift saturated at the pentamer.
