Novel Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescence Materials–Thioxanthone Derivatives and Their Applications for Highly Efficient OLEDs




Thermally activated delayed fluorescence emitters with small energy gap between the triplet and singlet (ΔEST), TXO-PhCz and TXO-TPA, have been successfully synthesized by combining a hole-transporting TPA/PhCz moiety and an electron-transporting TXO moiety. Both compounds display efficient solid-state luminescence with an efficient up-conversion of the triplet to singlet. OLEDs based on them exhibt high performance up to 21.5%, which is among the best reported for OLEDs.
