Phosphorescent iridium(III) complexes are being widely explored for their utility in diverse photophysical applications. The performance of these materials in such roles depends heavily on their excited-state properties, which can be tuned through ligand and substituent effects. This concept article focuses on methods for synthetically tailoring the(More)
We report on the spectroscopic, electrochemical, and electroluminescent properties of [Ir(ppy)(2)(dtb-bpy)](+)(PF(6))(-) (ppy: 2-phenylpyridine, dtb-bpy: 4,4'-di-tert-butyl-2,2'-dipyridyl). Single-layer devices were fabricated and found to emit yellow light with a brightness that exceeds 300 cd/m(2) and a luminous power efficiency that exceeds 10 Lm/W at(More)
The catalytic process of photoinduced hydrogen generation via the reduction of water has been investigated. The use of parallel synthetic techniques has facilitated the synthesis of a 32 member library of heteroleptic iridium complexes that was screened, using high-throughput photophysical techniques, to identify six potential photosensitizers for use in(More)
A method for accelerating the discovery of ionic luminophores using combinatorial techniques is reported. The photophysical properties of the resulting transition-metal-based chromophores were compared against a series of analogous, traditionally prepared species. The strong overlap between these two sets confirms the identity of the parallel synthesis(More)
A family of heteroleptic (C;N)2Ir(acac) and homoleptic fac-Ir(C;N)3 complexes have been synthesized and their photophysical properties studied (where C;N = a substituted 2-phenylpyridine and acac = acetylacetonate). The neutral Delta and Lambda complexes were separated with greater than 95% enantiomeric purity by chiral supercritical fluid chromatography,(More)
