Three green compounds for color filter dyes based on bis(cyclopentadienyl) titanium complexes including dithiolate ligand were synthesized. Physical properties by the change of the substitution groups of the synthesized materials were systematically examined. UV-visible absorption spectrum of the synthesized materials showed maximum absorbing wavelengths of 427 to 430 nm and 632 to 635 nm in solution state, and 434 to 438 nm and 637 to 651 nm in film state, indicating green and black colors. It was observed that the extinction coefficient values (log ε) of all the synthesized materials are very high at 4.0 or above. In addition, it was shown that since the Td values of three synthesized materials show thermal stability higher than 240°C, they possess high potential to be applied as dyes for LCD color filter and black matrix addictive.
