A deep-red phosphorescent ionic iridium(III) complex is prepared and incorporated into a polymer. Both the complex (1) and the polymer (2) were used as the single active material in solid-state light-emitting electrochemical cells (LECs). The devices built up using 1 and 2 emit in the deep-red region of the visible spectrum with CIE coordinates x = 0.710; y… (More)
Materials and Methods. The solvents (puriss grade) were purchased from Fluka. 2-Phenylpyridine and hydrated iridium trichloride were used as received from Aldrich and Johnson Matthey, respectively. UV-vis spectra were recorded in a 1 cm path length quartz cell on a on a 845x UV-visible Agilent spectrophotometer, operating with UV-visible ChemStation… (More)
The structure-property relationship study of a series of cationic Ir(III) complexes in the form of [Ir(C^N)2(dtBubpy)]PF6 [where dtBubpy = 4,4'-di-tert-butyl-2,2'-bipyridine and C^N = cyclometallating ligand bearing an electron-withdrawing group (EWG) at C4 of the phenyl substituent, i.e., -CF3 (1), -OCF3 (2), -SCF3 (3), -SO2CF3 (4)] has been investigated.… (More)
A theoretical density functional theory study has been performed on different families of cationic cyclometallated Ir(III) complexes with the general formula [Ir(C^N)2(N^N)](+) and azole-based ligands. The goal was to investigate the effect that the number and position of the nitrogen atoms of the azole ring have on the electronic structure and emission… (More)
The synthesis and characterization of four iridium(iii) complexes [Ir(thpy)2(N^N)][PF6] where Hthpy = 2-(2'-thienyl)pyridine and N^N are 6-phenyl-2,2'-bipyridine (1), 4,4'-di-(t)butyl-2,2'-bipyridine (2), 4,4'-di-(t)butyl-6-phenyl-2,2'-bipyridine (3) or 4,4'-dimethylthio-2,2'-bipyridine (4) are described. The single crystal structures of ligand 4 and the… (More)
The synthesis and steady-state fluorescence studies on the interaction with AMPH, METH, MDMA, and DA of two diazatetraester pyrazole crowns containing appended N-(9H-fluoren-9-yl) and N-(naphth-2-ylmethyl) functions, in a water/ethanol 70:30 mixture at physiological pH, are described.
