Abstract

Highly organic soluble Ir(III) complexes with 9-(6-phenyl-pyridin- 3ylmethyl)-9H-carbazole were simply synthesized, and the solubility of the new complex was significantly improved when compared with the conventional green-emitting Ir(ppy)3. Since a carbazole group is tethered through a nonconjugated methylene spacer, the photophysical properties of new complexes are almost identical with those of conventional Ir(ppy)3. The pure complexes were utilized to prepare electrophos-phorescent polymer light-emitting diodes (PLEDs). The device performances were observed to be relatively better or comparable with those of IKppy)s based poly(ATvinylcarbazole) systems. The integration of rigid hole-transporting carbazole and phosphorescent complex provides a new route to design highly efficient solution-processable complex for electrophosphorescent PLED applications.
