dibenzopyrrole, a heterocyclic compound; colorless crystals that are insoluble in water and soluble in organic solvents. Melting point, 245°-247°C; boiling point, 354°-355°C. It is a weak base, forming unstable salts and acids.

Carbazole is extracted from coal tar (from anthracene oil) andis also prepared synthetically from aminodiphenyl and phe-nanthrene. It is used in the manufacture of dyes, pharmaceuti-cals, and insecticides.[11–1194–1 ]

The relative peaks of the PCzC-QDs (R, G, and B) nanocomposite devices were ~2-5 nm red-shifted to PTpC-QDs (R, G, and B) nanocomposite devices, indicating that the recombination zone of electrons and holes in the carbazole is higher than that of the triphenylamine based nanocomposite.
