From black melanins to light-emitting triazatruxenes: Melanin-inspired triazatruxenes have been synthesized and their opto-electronic properties studied (see figure). The comparision of the electroluminescence and luminance of the OLED devices fabricated with triazatruxenes suggests the potential of the asymmetric platform as a new central core for light-emitting materials.
