Abstract
Naturally occurring substances have been used increasingly for a number of applications, with advantages such as their low cost, ecofriendliness, and renewability. This study investigated natural substances that may be used in organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). An extract of the marine macroalga Gelidium amansii was fractionated using column chromatography. The photoluminescence activity of the fractions showed peaks at 670–680 nm and Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy and 1H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) analysis identified the photoactive compound as violaxanthin.
