This work reports the first structure-properties relationship study of ortho [2,1-c]-, meta [1,2-a]-, and para [1,2-b]dihydroindenofluorenes, highlighting the influence of bridge rigidification on the electronic properties. This study has made it possible to devise an extended π-conjugated molecule with both a high triplet state energy level and excellent(More)
The synthesis and X-ray crystal structure of the ligand L (4,7-dicarbazol-9-yl-[1,10]-phenanthroline) are reported, as well as those of the molecular complex, [Eu(tta)(3)(L)] (1), (tta = 2-thenoyl trifluoroacetylacetonate). Their photophysical properties have been investigated both in solution and in the solid state. It was shown that the ligands used for(More)
Concentration quenching is a major impediment to efficient organic light-emitting devices. We herein report on Organic Light-Emitting Diodes (OLEDs) based on a fluorescent amorphous red-emitting starbust triarylamine molecule (4-di(4’-tert-butylbiphenyl-4-yl)amino4’-dicyanovinylbenzene, named FVIN), exhibiting a very small sensitivity to concentration(More)
A new host material based on the 2,7,4'-substituted spirobifluorene platform has been designed and used in single-layer phosphorescent OLED with very high efficiency (EQE = 13.2%) and low turn-on voltage (2.4 V). This performance is among the best reported for green single-layer PhOLEDs and may open new avenues in the design of host materials for(More)
This work reports a detailed structure-property relationship study of a series of efficient host materials based on the donor-spiro-acceptor (D-spiro-A) design for green and sky-blue phosphorescent organic light-emitting diodes (PhOLEDs). The electronic and physical effects of the indoloacridine (IA) fragment connected through a spiro bridge to different(More)
The paper reports the use of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of dithiols to induce electroless copper deposition on a gold substrate. The metallization catalyst, palladium nanoparticles, is bound on the dithiol SAM. The assembly process is followed by IR and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopies to confirm the formation of a monolayer with bound catalyst.(More)
Organic semiconductors have great potential for producing hydrogen in a durable and economically viable manner because they rely on readily available materials and can be solution-processed over large areas. With the objective of building efficient hybrid organic-inorganic photoelectrochemical cells, we combined a noble-metal-free and solution-processable(More)
A new electron-rich fragment, namely the quinolinophenothiazine (QPTZ) is reported. The QPTZ fragment incorporated in spiroconfigured materials leads to higher performance in blue Phosphorescent OLEDs than structurally related phenylacridine and indoloacridine based materials (increasing the HOMO energy level, modulating the spin-orbit coupling, etc.) and(More)
We report herein a detailed structure-properties relationship study of the first examples of electron-rich 4-substituted spirobifluorenes for organic electronic applications, namely, 4-phenyl-N-carbazole-spirobifluorene (4-PhCz-SBF) and 4-(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)-spirobifluorene (4-Ph(OMe)3-SBF). The incorporation of the electron-rich moieties in the ortho(More)
