The general concepts, design criteria, and physical parameters, such as component placement and electroluminescence, that relate to the construction of OLED devices are described, followed by a discussion of the current literature detailing the use of branched and dendritic materials as the key electroluminescent elements of single- and multi-layered(More)
A novel tetrakis(terpyridinyl)porphyrin derivative and its Ru(II) complexes were efficiently synthesized using microwave enhanced synthesis and shown to possess photovoltaic properties. Transmission electron microscopy and selected area electron diffraction were used to investigate its nanowire self-assembly.
Highly efficient green thermally activated delayed fluorescent organic light-emitting diodes with an external quantum efficiency of 31.2% were investigated by using 3-(3-(carbazole-9-yl)phenyl) pyrido[3',2':4,5]furo[2,3-b]pyridine (3CzPFP) derived from carbazole and pyrido[3',2':4,5]furo[2,3-b]pyridine. The host material showed well-matched(More)
Carbazole- and triazine-derived thermally activated delayed fluorescent (TADF) emitters, with three donor units and an even distribution of the highest occupied molecular orbital, achieve high external quantum efficiencies of above 25% in blue and green TADF devices.
Mathematics and art converge in the fractal forms that also abound in nature. We used molecular self-assembly to create a synthetic, nanometer-scale, Sierpinski hexagonal gasket. This nondendritic, perfectly self-similar fractal macromolecule is composed of bis-terpyridine building blocks that are bound together by coordination to 36 Ru and 6 Fe ions to(More)
CdS nanoparticles on the surface of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) were templated and stabilized through the initial attachment of 1 --> 3 C-branched amide-based dendrons and were both photophysically and morphologically characterized. The CdS clusters were shown to be ca. 1.4 nm in diameter as calculated from their optical absorption spectra and(More)
A novel carbazole moiety with bromine at the 1-position of carbazole was synthesized and four carbazole compounds derived from the 1-position modified carbazole were developed as the host materials for phosphorescent organic light-emitting diodes. The 1-position modified carbazole was coupled with another carbazole to prepare bicarbazole intermediates,(More)
Benzofurocarbazole and benzothienocarbazole were used as electron donors of thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) emitters and the performances of the TADF devices were examined. The benzofurocarbazole and benzothienocarbazole donor moieties were better than carbazole as the electron donors of the TADF emitters.
High efficiency and color tuning of thermally activated delayed fluorescent emitters were achieved at the same time by designing emitters with a twin emitter molecular design. The control of the interconnect position between two emitters could manage the emission spectrum of the thermally activated delayed fluorescent emitters without affecting the quantum(More)
