Title: Charge transport layers and/or charge generation layers comprising unsaturated aliphatic hydrocarbons and photoconductors including the same

Abstract: Charge generation layers comprise a binder including an unsaturated aliphatic hydrocarbon and charge generation compound, wherein the unsaturated, aliphatic hydrocarbon comprises at least 10 carbon atoms. Charge transport layers comprise one or more unsaturated aliphatic hydrocarbons and a charge transport compound, wherein the unsaturated hydrocarbon comprises at least 10 carbon atoms. Dual layer photoconductors comprise a substrate, a charge transport layer and a charge generation layer, wherein at least one of the charge generation layer or charge transport layer comprise one or more unsaturated aliphatic hydrocarbons having at least 10 carbon atoms.
