Equation presented. Syntheses of differently substituted 2,5-diarylthiophenes and 2,5-diarylthiazoles are carried out with the palladium-catalyzed C-H substitution reaction using AgF as an activator. Remarkably strong photoluminescence is observed in 2,5-diarylthiophene. Differences between the physical properties of liquid crystalline characteristics and cyclic voltammograms of thiophene and thiazole are also studied.
