Two new amorphous molecular materials, 2,5-bis(2′,5′-dimethyl-4-triphenylsilyl-phenyl)-[1,3,4]oxadiazole (BDTSO) and 2,5-bis(2′,5′-dimethyl-4-triphenylsilyl-phenyl)-[1,3,4]thiadiazole (BDTST) were synthesized and investigated as hole blocking materials (HBM) for organic light-emitting diodes. The efficiency of electroluminescent device was improved by using BDTSO instead of BAlq. The current and power efficiency of the device using BDTSO as HBM is 39.6 cd/A and 13.1 lm/W at 10 mA/cm2, respectively, which is higher compared to the same values for devices using BDTST and BAq which are typically used as HBM.
Journal for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (JNN) is an international and multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal with a wide-ranging coverage, consolidating research activities in all areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology into a single and unique reference source. JNN is the first cross-disciplinary journal to publish original full research articles, rapid communications of important new scientific and technological findings, timely state-of-the-art reviews with author's photo and short biography, and current research news encompassing the fundamental and applied research in all disciplines of science, engineering and medicine.
