The strong blue emission, resistance to quenching, and ease of synthesis of 7,8,10-triphenylfluoranthene (TPF) are exploited for applications in organic blue-light-emitting devices. The image shows the structure of TPF superimposed on a graph of the electroluminescence efficiency of a pristine device.
