A synthetic route to novel benzofuran fused silole derivatives is described and the new compounds were fully characterized. These compounds showed optical and electrochemical properties that differ from their benzothiophene analog. Preliminary results show that these derivatives can be used as blue emitters in organic light emitting devices (OLEDs) illustrating the potential of these new compounds for opto-electronic applications.
