    ABSTRACT: A series of new organic dyes exploiting coplanar indacenodithiophene as the central π-spacer of the classical donor-(π-spacer)-acceptor configuration were synthesized and characterized for dye-sensitized solar cells. The coplanarity of the indacenodithiophene core facilitates efficient donor to acceptor charge transfer, imparting the new organic dyes significant bathochromic shifts and remarkable power conversion efficiencies of up to 6.7% (DTInDT) under AM 1.5G radiation.

    ABSTRACT: Carbazole-based materials adopting the nonconjugated substitution of triphenylsilyl (-SiPh(3)) and trityl (-CPh(3)) side groups are studied as high-triplet-energy, morphologically, and electrochemically stable host materials with tunable carrier-transport properties for organic blue electrophosphorescence. The developed host materials 9-(4-tert-butylphenyl)-3,6-bis(triphenylsilyl)-9H-carbazole (CzSi), 9-(4-tert-butylphenyl)-3,6-ditrityl-9H-carbazole (CzC), and 9-(4-tert-butylphenyl)-3-(triphenylsilyl)-6-trityl-9H-carbazole (CzCSi) all show high triplet energies of 2.97-3.02 eV, along with high glass transition temperatures of 131-163 degrees C and superior electrochemical stability. Nevertheless, the carrier-transport properties show rather significant dependence on different substitutions. Although three different host materials give similar peak electroluminescence efficiencies at low driving currents, the CzSi host, which has more suitable carrier-transport properties, renders broadened distributions of the triplet excitons in phosphorescent devices, reducing the quenching associated with triplet-triplet annihilation and giving larger resistance against efficiency roll-off at higher brightnesses.

    ABSTRACT: We have synthesized a series of novel coplanar chromophores in which heteroarenes, namely, thiophene, benzothiophene, and carbazole, were fused to neighboring phenylene ring(s) through intramolecular annulation via sp(3)-hybridized carbon atoms bearing two p-tolyl groups as peripheral substituents. The molecular configurations of the pi-conjugated backbones were determined by X-ray crystallographic analysis; the heteroarene-fused molecular frameworks of these novel molecules exhibit nearly coplanar conformations.
