Crosslinkable Branched Hydrazones as Potential Hole Transporting Materials
Such branched hydrazone compounds were synthesized by the reaction of N-2,3-epoxypropyl-N-phenylhydrazones, having heterocyclic or aromatic chromophores R, with different linking agents X, for example, benzenediols or aromatic dimercapto compounds. The molecules of these TM consist of two hydrazone branches linked by the central flexible bridge. The existence of several diastereoisomers, the possibility of intermolecular hydrogen bonding and flexibility of aliphatic linking chains make crystallisation in solid state difficult, so these materials are molecular glasses. Another peculiarity of these TM is the presence of two hydroxyl groups in the molecule. This improves adhesion and compatibility not only with traditional polycarbonate (PC) binder material but also with polyvinylbutyral (PVB). Meanwhile, such branched hydrazone dimers can be chemically crosslinked in the layer, for example, by reaction of the hydroxyl groups with polyisocyanates. These branched hydrazone properties increase the layer stability to bending and stretching of electrophotography belts and the effects of liquid developer. The synthesized TM and compositions with binder exhibit good hole transporting properties and high mobility making them useful for preparation of high sensitivity electro-photographic photoconductors.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
