Carbazole and their derivatives are compounds that have a great importance in the industry because their potential applications in solid-state lighting technologies. These materials have photorefractive and photoconductive properties, it is charge transporter (hole) and it is employed in organic light emission diodes. Therefore, with the aim of to contribute in the art state of this type of materials was done the synthesis of a carbazole-based material, from carbazole and bromobenzyl alcohol, employing as catalyzer sodium hydroxide and as solvent sulfoxide dimethyl. The material obtained was characterized by hydroxyl value, infrared analysis, nuclear magnetic resonance, thermogravimetric, X ray diffraction and ultraviolet- visible analyses. By infrared and proton nuclear magnetic resonance analyses was evidenced the formation of the carbazole-based material. The carbazole-based material presented fluorescent properties, since when was taken to ultraviolet lamp, this material emitted light. The thermal stability exhibited by this material may facilitate its use under conditions of high temperature. The results obtained in this study are very important since so many fluorescent materials such as organic light emission diodes are doing imported in Colombia. Therefore, the carbazole-based material may be an alternative for substitution of importations of this type of materials.
