Article
Full-text available
Most silicone polymers are linear compounds derived from dimethylsiloxane (D) monomers; the incorporation of tri- (T) and tetra-functional (Q) monomers usually leads to elastomers. MQ or MT resins, high value materials used as reinforcing agents, are exceptions in that they are very highly branched, and highly reticulated but remain mobile and flui...
Article
Full-text available
The current paradigm in polymer chemistry increasingly involves controlled syntheses with better structural control and, consequently, products with narrow ranges of properties. Traditionally, silicone polymers are prepared under equilibrating conditions to give broad mixtures. The alternative, kinetically controlled ring opening polymerization at...

Full-text available
Aiming to develop efficient blue-emitting thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) compounds, we have designed and synthesized derivatives of the well-known sky-blue emitter 2CzPN that contain electron-accepting phosphine chalcogenide groups to...
Article
Full-text available
Thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) relies on a small energy gap between the emissive singlet and the nonemissive triplet state, obtained by reducing the wave function overlap between donor and acceptor moieties. Efficient emission, however, requires maintaining a good oscillator strength, which is itself based on sufficient overlap of...

Article
Thermally stable silicone elastomers based on silphenylenes are normally white solids at room temperature due to physical interactions between silphenylene moieties that lead to separated domains. We demonstrate that the Piers–Rubinsztajn reaction can be used to prepare highly branched tri- and tetrasilphenylene monomers from commercial alkoxysilan...
Article
Full-text available
Organic long‐persistent luminescence (OLPL) is one of the most promising methods for long‐lived‐emission applications. However, present room‐temperature OLPL emitters are mainly based on a bimolecular exciplex system which usually needs an expensive small molecule such as 2,8‐bis(diphenyl‐phosphoryl)dibenzo[b,d]thiophene (PPT) as the acceptor. In t...
Article
We report two donor-acceptor (D-A) materials based on a cyanoanthracene acceptor paired with diphenylamine (DPAAnCN) and carbazole (CzAnCN) donor moieties. These compounds show hybrid locally excited (LE) charge-transfer (CT) excited states (HLCT), which we demonstrated through a combined photophysical and computational study. Vacuum-deposited orga...
Article
Most traditional methods for silicone elastomer preparation involve catalysts whose incomplete removal can result in compromised thermal stability of the product elastomers and/or safety concerns. Herein, we report the oxidative curing of hydrosilane (H-Si) functionalized polymers to generate silicone elastomers at 250 oC in air but in the absence...
Article
We designed and synthesized two new ambipolar host materials, namely CzPO and Cz3PO. Combining CzPO and Cz3PO with CzTRZ2 as the emitter resulted in improved maximum external quantum efficiencies of 13.1% and 13.2%, respectively, together with small efficiency roll-offs, while the device based on bis[2-(diphenylphosphino)phenyl]ether oxide (DPEPO)...
Chapter
This chapter discusses the development of purely organic (i.e. metal‐free) small molecule organic solution‐processed thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) materials and their use in organic light‐emitting diode (OLED) devices and compare their performance with the state‐of‐the‐art vacuum‐deposited TADF materials and devices. The developme...
Article
A series of four novel deep blue to sky blue thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) emitters (2CzdOXDMe, 2CzdOXD4MeOPh, 2CzdOXDPh and 2CzdOXD4CF3Ph) have been synthesized and characterized. These oxadiazole-based emitters demonstrated bluer emission compared with reference emitter 2CzPN thanks to the weaker acceptor strength of oxadiazole...
Article
Full-text available
The development of materials for deep blue OLEDs will be presented. A novel donor‐acceptor TADF compound comprising oxadiazole acceptor units was studied. The emission is tuned towards deep‐blue by tuning the acceptor strength, and TADF is demonstrated. Finally, the results are compared with model sky‐blue emitter 2CzPN.
Chapter
Thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) represents a very promising singlet harvesting mechanism that permits harvesting of both singlet and triplet excitons in electroluminescent devices. In this chapter, the operating principle of TADF mechanism is introduced. Two major classes of TADF emitters employed in light-emitting electrochemical c...
Article

Polymer organic light-emitting diode (PLED) is one of the most studied subjects in flexible electronics thanks to their economical wet fabrication procedure for enhanced price advantage of the product device. In order to optimize PLED efficiency, correlating the polymer structure with the device performance is essential. An important question for t...

A series of five novel sky-blue to green emitting push-pull fluorophores based on phenothiazine donor and 1,3,4- oxadiazole acceptor were synthesized and characterized. Their doped thin films (5 wt% in PMMA) showed high quantum efficiencies (ФPL) from 0.63 to 0.77. These fluorophores also underwent remarkably reversible oxidations and reductions su...

We herein report the first cross comparison of 14 poly(dibenzofulvene) derivatives (13 novel examples and the parent poly(dibenzofulvene)) in order to understand how the choice of substituent affects the physical properties of this interesting class of semiconducting polymers. Electron withdrawing substituents decreased the polymerization reactivit...

Full-text available
The design of Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescence (TADF) materials both as emitters and as hosts is an exploding area of research. The replacement of phosphorescent metal complexes with inexpensive organic compounds in electroluminescent (EL) devices that demonstrate comparable performance metrics is paradigm shifting as these new materials of...

Full-text available
Light-emitting electrochemical cells (LECs) based on fluorescent host-guest small molecules system are reported. The LECs show electroluminescence coming solely from the guest, with an external quantum efficiency (EQE) of 2.0%, which is very close to the theoretical maximum EQE (2.2%) for this particular system. This work demonstrates the possibili...
Article
Full-text available
Two novel charged organic thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) emitters, 1 and 2, have been synthesized. Their TADF behavior is well-supported by the multiexponential decay of their emission (nanosecond and microsecond components) and the oxygen dependence of the photoluminescence quantum yields. Spin-coated electroluminescent devices ha...

In this study, a series of four formyl-substituted chloro-bridged iridium(III) dimers were prepared. Their absorption, photophysical and electrochemical properties were studied in dichloromethane solution. It was found that as the formyl content increased on the cyclometalating ligands, emission unexpectedly became brighter. Organic light-emitting...
