We report a series of thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) molecules with mechanochromic luminescence properties and reversible TADF turn on/off properties in solid state that are induced by the transition between amorphous and crystalline states. Additionally, multicolor altering through external stimulus is demonstrated. All of the studied compounds exhibited recovery of the initial states associated with narrower emission spectra. TADF organic light-emitting diodes fabricated by solution processing rendered high external quantum efficiency up to 10.9% and luminance of 16 760 cd m–2.
