Monocyclometalated Gold(III) Monoaryl Complexes: A New Class of Triplet Phosphors with Highly Tunable and Efficient Emission Properties

A new design strategy was applied to obtain novel monocyclometalated gold(III) monoaryl complexes with highly tunable and rich phosphorescent emission properties. It is shown that an aryl and alkyne ligand can be stabilized in a cis-configuration in a monocyclometalated Au(III) complex. Highly efficient interligand charge transfer was achieved through the incorporation of a (4-diphenylamino-phenyl) alkyne unit that gave rise to a wide range of emission colors from deep blue to red with phosphorescence emission quantum yields of 30% (441 nm) and 39% (622 nm) in solution and solid state, respectively.
