New sulfone derivatives were prepared and characterized for use as organic electron-transport agents (ETA). The novel sulfone framework is isomeric to the already existing 4-(dicyanomethylene)-4H-2-phenyl-benzo[b]thiapyran-1 ,1 -dioxide (BbPS). The materials were coated over electrophotoactive films in order that electronmobility and photodischarge experiments could be preformed. The electrophotograhic data of the new materials compared to BbPS showed slower film speed, a similar dark decay and higher electron-mobility.
