Oligothiophene derivatives play a central role in the formulation of materials used in devices in the fieldof organic electronics. In this work, we report the results of the study of UV-vis absorption andfluorescence spectra, in several solvents, of a series of oligothiophenes recently synthesized in ourlaboratory. The studied oligothiophenes present different structures due to several factors: the donor–acceptor (D–A) or acceptor–donor–acceptor (A–D–A) architecture, the number of thiophene rings inthe backbone (ranging from three to eight), the number and position of solubilizing octyl chains in thebackbone, and the type of acceptor moieties (from Knoevenagel condensation either with ethyl cyanoacetateor 3-ethylrhodanine). Since solvents with different polarities were adopted, we provide a detailedanalysis on the observed positive and negative solvatochromism effects depending on the symmetry of the oligomers, the lengths of the backbones and the kind of acceptors adopted. Moreover, the electrochemical synthesis of a new donor–acceptor oligothiophene (which can be assumed as a model compound) by anodic dimerization is reported, along with the voltammetric analysis of the obtained product.
