Synthesis, characterization, and electroluminescent properties of iridium(III) 2-phenylpyridine-type complexes containing trifluoromethyl substituents and various main-group moieties
New heteroleptic cyclometalated iridium(III) 2-phenylpyridine-type complexes with trifluoromethyl substituents and various main-group moieties were synthesized and their photophysical, electrochemical, and electroluminescent (EL) properties studied. The emission color can be tuned by a facile derivatization of the phenyl moiety of 2-phenylpyridine with various main-group moieties, and we have prepared new yellowish-green to orange triplet emitters with enhanced charge injection/charge transporting features, which can furnish attractive EL performance in phosphorescent organic light-emitting devices (OLEDs). Attempts were also made to fabricate two-color white-light OLEDs based on a combination of fluorescent blue and phosphorescent orange emitters. © 2014 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
