Abstract

The development of muliple resonance thermally activated delayed fluorescence (MR-TADF) materials possessing narrow emission spectra has attracted significant attention as emitters for high colour purity organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs). In this work, a simple design strategy is introduced to construct a MR-TADF emitter, DDiKTa, through dimerization of the known MR-TADF emitter DiKTa. This design permits concentration quenching to be largely suppressed, which is a known weakness of previously reported MR-TADF emitters. OLEDs based on DDiKTa show an EQEmax of 19% at a doping concentration of 9 wt%. The electrolumicence spectrum is red-shifted into the green, producing a rare example of a green-emitting MR-TADF OLED.
