Paper Abstract

Crystallinic red fluorophores based on donor-acceptor substituted spirofluorene, i.e., PhSPDCV show strong fluorescence in solution (Φf ~ 70 %) as well as in solid state (Φf > 30 %). Non-doped red OLEDs fabricated with PhSPDCV exhibit authentic red (CIE, x = 0.65, y = 0.35) electroluminescence with brightness over 12,000 cd m-2 (or > 600 cd m-2 at 20 mA cm-2) and remarkable external quantum efficiency as high as 3.6%. On the other hand, the bis-substituted derivatives of spirofluorene BisPhSPDCV show relatively weak fluorescence both in solution (&PHgr;f < 20 %) and in solid state (Φf < 10%). Although saturated red electroluminescence (CIE, x = 0.65, y = 0.34) is also observed, non-doped red OLED containing BisPhSPDCV performs much worse than PhSPDCV OLEDs. Both PhSPDCV and BisPhSPDCV are not amorphous forming loosely packed crystallinic materials in solid state with no intimate π-π interaction.
