Organic light-emitting materials based on bis(arylacetylide)platinum(II) complexes bearing substituted bipyridine and phenanthroline ligands: photo- and electroluminescence from 3MLCT excited states.

We present the synthesis and photophysical and electroluminescent properties for a series of platinum(II) alpha-diimine bis(arylacetylide) complexes. The molecular structures of five derivatives have been elucidated by X-ray crystallography. Intermolecular pi-pi interactions (between aromatic diimine and phenylacetylide moieties) are apparent in the crystal… CONTINUE READING
