In this paper, a novel perylene diimide derivative 1,7-bis[N,N-bis(4-phenyl)aniline]perylene diimide (PDI-TPA) was synthesized and characterized by IR spectroscopy, 1 H NMR and elemental analysis. Besides, solubility and photoelectric properties of 1,7-bis[N,N-bis(4phenyl)aniline]perylene diimide were studied. Results show that 1,7-bis[N,N-bis(4-phenyl)aniline]perylene diimide exhibits excellent solubility in common solvents. The absorption bands span a wide range of the visible spectra and
