Fluorenylpyridine-Derived Iridium Complexes for Electrophosphorescent Light-Emitting Diodes
Abstract:To develop efficient emitting materials for organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), a series of cyclometalated iridium complexes with 2-fluorenylpyridine-derived ligands were synthesized. Complexes 1–4 exhibited yellow to red phosphorescence with quantum yields of 0.17–0.33 in degassed CH2Cl2. Multilayered OLEDs were fabricated by using these iridium complexes as dopant materials. In the device employing complex 1 as a dopant, the maximum luminance, maximum luminance efficiency and maximum power efficiency were 15600 cd/m2 at 14 V, 12.8 cd/A, and 8.94 lm/W, respectively, at the CIE coordinates of (0.648, 0.350), which is close to the saturated red emission. The electron-withdrawing carbonyl substituent groups affected markedly the EL performances of fluorenylpyridine-derived iridium complexes as red emitting materials.
