KGaA, Weinheim. 1,2,3-Triazole rings bearing hydrophobic aliphatic or hydrophilic oligoether chains were easily introduced at the two ends of the conjugated skeleton of bisthiophene-diketopyrrolopyrrole (TDPP) derivatives by simple click cycloaddition reactions. The combination of side chains with different structures and polarities on the triazole rings with the side chains on the N-atoms of the lactam groups of the TDPP moiety enabled the solubility and the solid-state spectroscopic properties of the resulting conjugated molecules to be tuned. Formation of nanostructured aggregates and dependence of their spectroscopic behavior on the substitution pattern were investigated.
