Author(s) from Durham


Organic electronics, mainly due to the advancement of OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) technology, is a fast developing research area, and has already revolutionized the displays market. This direction presents the use of exciplex emitters and thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) in OLEDs. This is shown through electrochemical characterisation of six p-phenylene derivatives for application in optoelectronic devices and presents the possibility the compounds' use as OLED emitters. In these OLED devices, it is established that selenophene based compounds with a "heavy-atom effect" can be used as potential emitters when exciplex phenomena are involved. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ltd.
