    TADF materials can theoretically realize a 100% exciton utilization rate. This paper reviews recent progress on macromolecular TADF materials with a focus on the molecular design strategy and OLED performance. The various results reveal that the polymers can achieve high OLED efficiency via TADF effect and low cost by solution processable devices.

    Aggregation-induced emission (AIE) fluorogens show weak or no fluorescence as molecular species, but intense fluorescence as aggregates. They are promising fluorescent turn-on probes for highly selective biomolecule detection and cell imaging with a high signal-to-background ratio and an excellent photostability.

    A series of new neutral and water-soluble cationic rhodium complexes bearing strong π-acidic dibenzo[a,e]cyclooctatetraene (dbcot) diene ligand have been synthesized and structurally characterized. In the polymerization of substituted phenylacetylenes, these Rh complexes not only exhibit higher activities than the related 1,5-cyclooctadiene (cod) Rh complexes whether in organic solvents or in water but also perform 3- to 163-fold acceleration of polymerization rate in water compared to in organic solvents, affording high cis-transoidal polymers with cis contents up to 99%.
